Samia has shared the latest single from her upcoming album The Baby, which arrives this Friday via Grand Jury. Titled ‘Triptych’, it comes with an accompanying music video directed by Fred Hechinger (Eighth Grade) and starring Samia and a ventriloquist dummy. Check it out below.
“I wrote “Triptych” sobbing in a green room in Denver,” Samia explains in a statement. “I’d just read the story of Francis Bacon and his lover/muse, George Dyer, whose chaotic lifestyle served as Bacon’s artistic inspiration. George Dyer overdosed in the bathroom of a hotel room paid for by Bacon, who famously painted a triptych of his lover’s final moments. I had just been through a pretty tough breakup and felt I might be purposefully getting myself into dicey situations to justify my big feelings and write about them. “Triptych” was a pretty blatant cry for help and an opportunity to confess my fear of being misunderstood.”
Previously, Samia unveiled the singles ‘Is There Something In The Movies?’, ‘Fit N Full’, ‘Big Wheel’, and ‘Stellate’.
