Bully Announces New Album ‘Lucky for You’, Shares Video for New Single

    Bully, the project of Alicia Bognanno, has announced she will be releasing a new album, Lucky for You, on June 2 via Sub Pop. Along with the announcement, she’s shared the new single ‘Days Move Slow’, which comes with a music video directed by Alex Ross Perry. Check it out and find the LP’s cover art, tracklist, and Bully’s upcoming tour dates below.

    ‘Days Move Slow’ was written after the passing of Bognanno’s dog, Mezzi. “As someone who has spent the majority of my life feeling agonisingly misunderstood, there is no greater gift than experiencing true unconditional love and acceptance,” she said in a statement. “I waited my whole life for the bond and irreplaceable companionship I had with Mezzi. She was my best friend and my only constant through some of the most pivotal moments and phases of my life. I was a stranger to the level of love I now know exists because of Mezzi. Love you forever; I’m lucky for you.”

    Alex Ross Perry commented: “This is my third time collaborating with Alicia, but my first time collaborating with Bully. Having written the original songs for my film Her Smell and performed at the Pavement Museum Tribute Concert ‘scene’ for my forthcoming film on them, I can’t believe I finally got to make a Bully video. Right away, it seemed striking to make a piece as stark and measured as possible, not to make a video that replicates the song’s sonic energy but to visualise the emotional weight and feelings of loss and grief depicted in the lyrics. Alicia doesn’t seem to have been filmed in 16mm black and white before, so it was a no-brainer to give that a try.”

    Lucky For You was recorded in 2022 at MMK Studios and Bognanno’s Nashville home, with help from producer JT Daly and mastering by Joe LaPorta at Sterling Sound. The 10-track LP includes the previously unveiled single ‘Lose You’, a collaboration with Soccer Mommy that landed on our Best New Songs segment.
