ACCLAIMED SINGER-SONGWRITER TO RELEASE DEBUT ALBUM
GOOD RIDDANCE ON FEBRUARY 24
TICKETS FOR NORTH AMERICAN HEADLINING TOUR ON SALE NOW
Acclaimed singer-songwriter Gracie Abrams shares her poignant and powerful new single “Where do we go now?” and its accompanying video. A gorgeously observed portrait of fading connection, “Where do we go now?” will appear on Abrams’s highly anticipated debut album Good Riddance. Produced by Aaron Dessner of The National, Good Riddance will be released February 24 via Interscope Records.
Produced by and co-written with her frequent collaborator Dessner, “Where do we go now?” finds Abrams documenting her emotional experience with more precision and impact than ever before. As she narrates the end of a fractured relationship and all the confusion, frustration, and longing that come with it, the 23-year-old artist achieves a new level of lyrical honesty and self-possession — an element fully reflected in her quietly captivating vocal work. Set against a sparse but hypnotic backdrop of elegantly sculpted beats, the result is a perfect introduction to the unfettered introspection that infuses all of Good Riddance. Good Riddance is available for pre-order now HERE.
Directed by Gia Coppola (Carly Rae Jepsen, Blood Orange), the video for “Where do we go now?” cycles through a series of stunningly composed shots capturing Abrams invarious states of emotional unrest. With its delicate interplay of shadows and light, the visual shifts from stark black-and-white to softly saturated color as Abrams whollyembodies the track’s whirlwind of feelings, ultimately pulling the audience even deeper into her interior world.
“Where do we go now?” arrives as Abrams’s first new music since “Difficult,” an October release also produced by and co-written with Dessner. A shining example of the poetic realism at the heart of her songwriting, “Difficult” earned immediate praise from the likes of Rolling Stone, who hailed the track as “a candid look at the uncertainty that comes with growing up” and noted that “putting those feelings of anxiety about the unknown so eloquently is a skill that most of her peers are still refining.”
