Phoebe Bridgers Releases New Video for “Would You Rather”

This morning, Phoebe Bridgers premiered her new video for “Would You Rather” via The FADER — which recently named her the ‘#1 Best New Artist of 2017. Directed by her brother, Jackson Bridgers, the video is a collage of live action and animation footage. “Would You Rather” is another track off her debut album Stranger In The Alps, which has been earning Bridgers acclaim from Pitchfork, Billboard, Vulture, Stereogum, Bandcamp, W Magazine, and Under The Radar, among others, as well as spots on year-end, best-of lists from outlets including The FADER, Noisey, Uproxx, Consequence Of Sound, Paste, BBC6, The Sunday Times (UK), and Rough Trade. Pandora also recently named Bridgers one of their ‘Artists To Watch 2018.’ We’re so thrilled that Bridgers’ work is resonating with everyone as strongly as it has resonated with us. You can watch the new video below.

Following her sold-out hometown album release show at Los Angeles’ Lodge Room in Highland Park on December 16th, Bridgers will head out on a North American headlining tour in early 2018. The first leg will begin on February 3rd in Santa Ana, CA and wrap up on March 1st in Pontiac, MI, and includes a February 23rd Brooklyn, NY show at Music Hall of Williamsburg. The second leg will pick back up on April 4th in Salt Lake City, UT and wrap up on April 27th in San Francisco, CA. A current itinerary is below.

Watch Phoebe Bridgers’ NPR Music Tiny Desk Concert, Listen to Her Holiday Cover of “Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas”

Phoebe BridgersNPR Music Tiny Desk Concert debuted online today, featuring live versions of her songs “Motion Sickness,” “Killer,” and “Demi Moore.” watch it now HERE. All three songs are featured on her debut album Stranger In The Alps, released on September 22nd to sweeping acclaim from outlets including Pitchfork, Billboard, The FADER, Vulture, Stereogum, Bandcamp, Uproxx, W Magazine, and Under The Radar, among many others.

Bridgers also released a holiday cover of “Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas” last week, which you can listen to at the bottom of this blog post. Bridgers will perform next at a sold out hometown record release show in Los Angeles on December 16th at Lodge Room Highland Park. Earlier this fall, she toured throughout North America with Conor Oberst, The War On Drugs, and Noah Gundersen, and more touring news for 2018 will be announced soon.

Produced by Tony Berg and Ethan Gruska, and mixed by Mike Mogis, the ten haunting and introspective songs on Stranger In The Alps further introduce 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.

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.
