Phoebe Bridgers’ Debut, ‘Stranger In The Alps,’ Out Today

To say Phoebe Bridgers doesn’t mince words almost feels like a disservice. True, she does cut to the core of the matter with an enviable economy of words. But to state it as such belies the emotional resonance and dedicated intention behind her lyrics. You’d be hard pressed to hear any track on her debut album, Stranger In The Alps, without feeling something.

At once personal and universal, the ten tracks that comprise the album run the gambit of emotion – a technicolor punch in the gut, a hand reaching through white-crested peaks. We don’t want to speak for you, but we’ll bet that as soon as you finish listening you’ll feel compelled to simply start the record over.

Give it a spin now, trust us.

Phoebe Bridgers Premieres New Song “Funeral” Via Zane Lowe’s Beats1 Show

Stream and/or Download “Funeral”
http://phoebebridgers.lnk.to/Funeral

It starts with a jagged, reverberated guitar line. It sounds like being underwater, deep underwater where light can barely cut through. Or maybe it’s more like strong winds blowing through a row of creaking trees at night. Whatever it recalls for you, it’s a fitting introduction to Phoebe Bridgers’ new song, “Funeral.”

Blunt, direct, and true blue through and through “Funeral” pulls on details big and small. It’s an utterly stunning, poignant track about loneliness, loss, and living through it.

Premiering via Zane Lowe’s Beats1 show earlier today, this is the third preview song from Bridgers’ forthcoming debut Stranger In The Alps, which is due on September 22nd. It’s available for pre-order, with all three singles (“Smoke Signals” & “Motion Sickness” being the others) coming as instant grat downloads with purchase.

Phoebe Bridgers Shares “Motion Sickeness” Video

Phoebe Bridgers has had the plan for this fantastic clip lined up for quite some time. “I’ve had the idea for this video since before recording ‘Motion Sickness’,” says Bridgers. “Probably inspired by my brother Jackson signing ‘Down With the Sickness; to me in karaoke with 100% commitment in an orange jumpsuit.”

The Justin Mitchell-directed video for the latest single off her forthcoming debut album, Stranger In The Alps, might not have an orange jumpsuit – but it definitely has karaoke. Watch it above now.

The song – which has earned praise from outlets including NPR Music (“…hers already feels like an indispensable voice”), Stereogum (“an aching betrayal”), NME, Brooklyn Vegan, Under The Radar, and The Line Of Best Fit, among many others – is available as a digital single as well as an instant grat download with pre-order of Stranger In The Alps, which will be released on September 22, 2017.

Following a September tour supporting Conor Oberst, Bridgers will headline a show at Highland Park Ebell in her hometown of Los Angeles, CA on September 21st as well as at Baby’s All Right in Brooklyn, NY on October 4th. She’ll then head overseas to the UK before returning home for a November tour with Noah Gundersen. A full list of dates is below.

Phoebe Bridgers Announces Debut Album ‘Stranger In The Alps’ – Out September 22nd

We are delighted to announce that Phoebe Bridgers will release her debut album Stranger In The Alps on September 22, 2017. The first cut, “Motion Sickness” can be heard via a lyric video – directed by her brother, Jackson Bridgers – now above. “Motion Sickness” follows Bridgers’ early 2017 single “Smoke Signals,” which will also be featured on Stranger In The Alps and is available as an instant grat download with pre-order of the album.

Produced by Tony Berg and Ethan Gruska, the ten haunting and introspective songs on Stranger In The Alps further introduces the 22-year-old Bridgers as a singular voice. There is a delicate balance to her work, a dance between veiled narratives and earnest emotions, between whispers and shouts. Throughout the album, Bridgers contemplates and reflects on personal experiences through her unique lyric writing perspective: there are overt references to lost idols, canonical pop songs and actual incidents, but her stories unfold through specific, evocative imagery sung in her subtle, confessional style. And according to Bridgers, everything you hear has arrived by feeling; her music is what comes when she is at her most honest, without specific intention, and she aims to be in her songs the person she is in the world.

“I wasn’t trying to be too lo-fi, too hi-fi, too self-serious, too disingenuous…I feel pretty confident that I’m finding my voice,” says Bridgers. “I wanted the album to completely represent who I am and these songs are representative of what I set out to do.”

Stranger In The Alps follows Bridgers’ 2015 three-song single “Killer,” produced by Ryan Adams in his L.A. studio and released on Adams’ Pax-Am label. Since early 2016, she’s toured with Julien Baker, Conor Oberst (who also guests on Stranger In The Alps track “Would You Rather”), and Adams, among others.

Bridgers will head back on tour next month with a one-off show supporting Cat Power (solo) at Pioneer Park in Salt Lake City, UT on August 17th, before joining up with Conor Oberst again in September. Bridgers is also confirmed to support Noah Gundersen this November. A full list of tour dates is at the bottom of this post.

Phoebe Bridgers Signs To Dead Oceans; Debut Album Coming Soon

“2017’s Best New Artist Might Just Be Phoebe Bridgers” – NPR MUSIC

We’re incredibly pleased to welcome Phoebe Bridgers to the Dead Oceans family. The debut album by the Los Angeles-based songwriter will be released later this year.

The 22 year-old Bridgers’ released her recent single, “Smoke Signals” – a breathtaking track that manages effortlessly to be a wounded love song as well as a five-and-a-half minute kiss-off to a generally cataclysmic 2016 – in early January, and in turn drew high praise from outlets including NPR Music, Billboard, NYLON, Stereogum, and The Los Angeles Times, among others. A video of her performing a stripped-down version of the song, filmed in Austin, TX, during SXSW for NPR Music’s ‘South X Lullaby’ series, can also be seen here: https://n.pr/2mTH4pR. Writing songs since age 11, Bridgers spent her teenage years performing at open mic nights and busking throughout her hometown before recording a debut three-song single, “Killer,” with Ryan Adams in his L.A. studio. “Killer” was released on Adams’ Pax-Am label in spring of 2015.

Bridgers has spent much of the past 12 months on the road with artists including Ryan Adams, Julien Baker, and Conor Oberst, with whom she’ll tour again in North America this September. The tour will begin on September 1st in Bellingham, WA and run throughout the northern U.S. and into Canada before wrapping up on the 17th in Bloomington, IL. First, she will head overseas for a June 28th show supporting Whitney in Paris, FR, as well as two headlining shows of her own on July 4th in Amsterdam, NL and July 5th in London, UK. A current itinerary is below.
