Katie Dey Announces New Album ‘forever music’, Shares New Songs

    Australian singer-songwriter Katie Dey has announced her next album: forever music will be self-released on January 28. The album, which Dey recorded entirely on her own, will be intially available as a Bandcamp exclusive, although she notes in a press release that “it may be released on streaming services in the future if i feel like it.” Listen to the first two singles from the record, ‘unfurl’ and ‘real love’, below.

    Talking about the new album, Katie Dey said in a statement (via Stereogum):

    forever music is about the eternal power of music and genuine love between women.
    its about staying alive as long as possible, in defiance against all odds,
    through life-threatening sickness in world made to hurt u,
    doing what little things possible to care for the people you love the most.

    i think it’s the most vulnerable and straightforward music i’ve ever made.
    my voice is frequently unfiltered and dry and i tried to keep the songwriting and production as efficient and minimal as possible.
    i was inspired by musicians including but not limited to : tori amos, utada hikaru, prince, ryuichi sakamoto, regina spektor, jpegmafia, & hatsune miku.
    it was written / performed / produced / mixed / mastered by me at my home in melbourne australia.

    Katie Dey’s most recent solo LP, mydatacame out in 2020, followed by the remix album urdata. Late last year, she shared a cover of Laugh & Peace’s ‘In the Sky’.
