Phoebe Bridgers will appear on the first episode of Zack Fox’s new livestream series, RELEASED!, which is set to premiere this Sunday, July 12, at 7 p.m EST (Monday July 13 at midnight BST) on Twitch. Presented by IHEARTCOMIX and Beats By Dr. Dre, the new variety show will be hosted by Fox and creative directed by Kitao Sakurai, who’s known for previously working on The Eric Andre Show and Bad Trip. Check out the promo for the debut episode below.
According to the video’s description, the show will be “based around a situational narrative and a headline music artist” and will include “DJ sets, performances, special guests, 3D intergalactic worlds, live animated characters and an absurd premise”. In addition to performing songs from her latest album, Punisher, the episode will also feature Bridgers and Fox “travelling through space as they try to make their way to the cyber goth prom”, according to an Instagram post.
Earlier this month, Bridgers and her collaborators from boygenius released exclusive demos from the group’s debut EP on Bandcamp for charity. The singer-songwriter also recently released a studio recording of her cover of John Prine‘s ‘Summer’s End’ and performed ‘I See You’ in her skeleton suit on The Late Late Show With James Corden. Her sophomore album, Punisher, was released back in June.
