A few weeks back, enigmatic pop singer Sky Ferreira revealed that she would release new music this month. March isn’t over yet, but Ferreira did share some new songs — well, parts of songs, and then immediately deleted them.
Ferreira posted a handful of teasers for new songs on her Instagram stories on Tuesday afternoon. She deleted them pretty promptly, but if the devil works hard, pop stans work harder. A Brazilian fan account caught all the snippets of songs before Ferreira removed them.
It’s hard to make any assessments of music based on hearing only five seconds of it, but even these short teasers sound great. Ferreira’s last album, 2013’s Night Time, My Time, was met with critical acclaim, and her follow-up has been highly anticipated for going on six years now. It’s not that Ferreira has held off on recording the album, either — she says she has faced “insane obstacles” from her label, and her efforts to make music on her own terms have caused the delayed timeline.
The snippets of new music are a great sign, though. With a slot on Lollapalooza’s lineup this summer, Ferreira has big things on the horizon. The five-second clips are intriguing, and something tells me it won’t be long until we hear the full versions.
