Annie Hart Announces New Album, Shares New Single ‘Stop Staring at You’

    Annie Hart has announced her fourth studio album, The Weight of a Wave. The follow-up to 2021’s Everything Pale Blue is due out August 4 via Uninhabitable Mansions. Today, Hart has shared the lead single ‘Stop Staring at You’, along with a Benjamin Kasulke-drected video. Check it out below and scroll down for the album cover and tracklist.

    “This song was inspired by a very charismatic friend of mine who was addicted to looking at how many likes they had on Instagram,” Hart explained in a statement. “I had fallen under their otherwise charming spell and was along for the ride of their friendship and fun adventures. One night, I saw them surrounded by fawning half-fans and saw them basking in the glow of this empty affection, and all lit up by being worshiped, and I just saw the sad emptiness of that kind of existence and knew there was nothing I could do for this person, that they had became the prisoner of their own misery. This song is about not judging your self worth on other people’s half-attention and finding your true value in yourself and your real relationships.”

    Hart added: “The video for this song is a meta take on this concept. It zooms out and makes fun of me – I hired a director to make a video that is all about me, singing a song about other people obsessed with themselves. I wanted to make a statement about how we are all participants in this sort of self-indulgent behavior. But I also just wanted to dance and make weird art on the beach.”
