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.
