Two years on since the release of her self-titled debut album, SASAMI has announced that its follow-up, ‘Squeeze’, will be arriving on 25th February via Domino.

Sharing two lead singles to celebrate, SASAMI says of ‘The Greatest’, “This song is about how often the greatest, heaviest feelings we have for someone are in the absence of the realization or reciprocation of that love. Like power born out of a black hole. All fantasy.”

On ‘Skin A Rat’, she describes it as “a soundtrack to cathartic release of anger and frustration with oppressive systems and humans. Very nu-metal influenced. Wrote and demoed the whole song on my iPad with midi drums and hired an epic drummer to perform it live to tape.”

Check both out below.

‘Squeeze’ Tracklisting:
1. Skin A Rat
2. The Greatest
3. Say It
4. Call Me Home
5. Need It To Work
6. Tried To Understand
7. Make It Right
