Set for release on 27th January via Grand Jury Music, Samia has announced her second album ‘Honey’.
“This record is about learning to see the love around you,” she explains. “Sometimes the only thing I can be certain of is the way it feels. Even when I zoom all the way out, the little things matter the most. I was trying to imagine looking back at the end of life and what I’d have to say about it right now. This is a little bit of it. Telling stories, making amends, trying to show people I love them. It’s a community record - I made it with Caleb Wright and our friends in the woods in North Carolina.”
Sharing lead single ‘Kill Her Freak Out’ alongside the news, she adds, “I wrote ‘Kill Her Freak Out’ at my loneliest and most delusional. I’d been quieting my true feelings for fear that someone would leave. The chorus is a reaction to constantly downplaying the emotions that felt wrong; it was cathartic to say the opposite of what I’d been saying for so long to this person I was trying to impress. I didn’t want to kill anyone, obviously, I just wanted to yell. It sort of marks the end of The Baby’s story.”
