Sky Ferreira put a lot of fans’ minds to rest yesterday when she confirmed that she’ll be releasing new music. Almost five years after her debut album Night Time, there’s been a lot of speculation about her much-anticipated follow-up Masochism.
“I am just waiting for the official official official beyond the point of no return release date before I officially announce my single(s) due timing for others involved & the process of the release or whatever,” she wrote on Instagram yesterday. “All I can say is that it is FINALLY happening.”
Regram @sandycandykim I am just waiting for the official official official beyond the point of no return release date before I officially announce my single(s) due timing for others involved & the process of the release or whatever. All I can say is that it is FINALLY happening .I’m sorry for being so quiet about everything (I thought I didn’t have much of a choice ) no more gag & bind. I promise I’ll explain the last few years soon. Thanks for the support…despite all infinite set backs…but this has happened before so I can 10000 percent say with certainty that it will not be compromised & it’s honest & will show the work I’ve put into all of it since my last album. Hopefully some progress lol. No tropical vacations (UNFORTUNATELY) & sunshine,rainbows,eat pray love maxing relaxing laying back legs reclined arms behind my head break for me in between these albums. I would just like to clarify for some: my silence should not be confused for negligence. I deeply care & put everything I have into my music. Including all of my earnings 👀 I won’t put out something that I don’t stand by or the bare minimum. Live/Learn Succeed/Fail Fly/Burn is fine either way as long as I’m the one responsible for it. Anytime I have ever said anything about music being released because I was lead to believe it was happening too. Unfortunate (some absurd) circumstances that were beyond my reach kept it from happening. It is my fault for not saying something sooner & letting it all repeat itself. Stick to your guns. You’re not crazy,dumb, or powerless. You’re beyond “capable”. Trust yourself. ~don’t let the suckers drag you down aka obliterate your self esteem~ do as I say, not as I do lol excited for you to hear the new songs Hell is overrated & have a lovely day. C u very soon on the ✨✨✨✨other side Xx Sky
She explained that the wait has been largely due to her desire for her music to be exactly what she wants before putting it out into the world. “I would just like to clarify for some: my silence should not be confused for negligence,” Sky wrote. “I deeply care & put everything I have into my music. Including all of my earnings. I won’t put out something that I don’t stand by or the bare minimum.”
Ferreira hinted at difficulties with her record label in an Instagram post from 2017. “I was genuinely stuck at the mercy of other people before (for almost years at this point),” she wrote. “No matter how hard I tried,it was beyond me.I couldn’t say anything because of the possibility that it would make things worse… I didn’t wait this long to put out something that meets the bare minimum for some.GOD BLESS a majority of those people are now out of my way & those problems are being fixed.”
The singer hasn’t completely disappeared these past few years, choosing to focus on acting with roles in the Twin Peaks revival and an upcoming part in Norwegian black metal movie, Lords of Chaos. In the meantime, you can revisit Night Time, My Time and that truly iconic album cover.
