Sky Ferreira -

Night Time, My Time? Sky Ferreira’s 2013 debut album was acclaimed upon release, but at the time it was overshadowed . Time has been good to it, though. It holds up better than almost every other 2013 LP. To call it anything other than a modern classic is to severely underrate it. Go back and listen. But first, listen to a brand new Sky Ferreira song!

Ferreira has really at last begun rolling out “Masochism”, her “Night Time, My Time” follow-up. “Downhill Lullaby,” will be her first new original song in six years, It’s a string-laden epic. Nils Gröndahl handled the strings on “Downhill Lullaby” and Twin Peaks: The Return music director Dean Hurley co-produced the song alongside Ferreira and Jorge Elbrecht.  The song was written by Ferreira, Elbrecht, and Tamaryn, and Iceage frontman Elias Bender Rønnenfelt contributed guitar.

Ferreira has been trickling out clues about her new album on Twitter lately. Acknowledging the aforementioned involvement of Tamaryn, she wrote, “Some of these songs might lean -accidentally – little -far -too-deep- v agro bittersweet symphony but…whatever.” About “Downhill Lullaby” specifically, the first song isn’t a pop song…because I really want to make a video for it (& I love it). I’m confident about all of the pop songs on my record so I decided to start with something different.”

The road to this moment has been long and bumpy. Way back in April of 2015, Ferreira confirmed her second LP would be titled Masochism. By June she was teasing a lead single called “Guardian” for release that summer, but despite being performed live in 2014, the record never materialized.
