SZA has shared the album artwork for S.O.S., her long-awaited sophomore LP. The follow-up to her 2017 debut full-length, Ctrl — which, in turn, followed three mixtapes: See.SZA.Run (2012), S (2013), and Z (2014) — is still supposedly scheduled to arrive before the end of 2022, though a precise release date has yet to be announced.
In an interview with Billboard published earlier this month, she was quoted as saying she felt stressed about hitting the December deadline and called herself “emotionally [and] energetically unequipped” for the life of a pop star.
SZA shared a new single called “Shirt” in October alongside a cinematic visual treatment co-starring Lakeith Stanfield. That song followed summer guest appearances on a remix of Doechii’s “Persuasive” and on “About a Gemini Pt. 3,” a cut from her niece ImaniCarolyn’s debut EP, Into The Blue Light.
