Joanna Sternberg has released a new track, ‘Neighbors’. It marks the singer-songwriter’s first new music since the release of their Fat Possum debut, I’ve Got Me, back in June. Listen to it below.
“I wrote this song about my social anxiety and how it manifests in the context of the high rise building I live in,” Sternberg said in a statement, referring to the the middle-income artists-only residence in the towers of Manhattan Plaza where I’ve Got Me was written. “I often am unsure of so many social rules and social cues that I just wind up either shutting down completely, or acting like an over-friendly almost muppet-like version of a human. This song is definitely intended to be sort of tongue-in-cheek/silly (I am very inspired by Randy Newman!) I performed this song at my piano in my living room and my very multi-talented friend Chris Miller recorded and mastered it!”
