Coco & Clair Clair Announce New Album ‘Girl’, Share New Single ‘Aggy’

    Coco & Clair Clair have announced a new album called Girl. The follow-up to 2022’s SEXY is set to arrive on August 30. Today, the duo has shared the record’s lead single ‘Aggy’, which you can hear below.

    “In the early stages of our writing process we had a running joke about being pregnant with a new album and how this one felt like a baby girl, whereas our last project, ‘SEXY’, felt more like a baby boy,” Coco & Clair Clair explained in a statement. “We were writing about our relationships, referencing and incorporating lyrics we had written years ago – lyrics previously put aside for being too vulnerable or confessional. We were experimenting with a style of production that felt more refined, polished, intentional, and intimate. We embraced the tension between that new approach and the characteristic qualities that propelled us early on: our resourcefulness, boastfulness, and flamboyance – all virtues of femininity and girlhood as much as they are tropes of masculinity.”

    “We listened to music that we felt exuded that same tension; Saint Etienne, Brandy, Everything but the Girl, Lana Del Rey, Club 8, Milky, and Madonna were huge inspirations both sonically and visually,” they continued. “We entered this new phase as closer friends and collaborators – more in tune with each other and ourselves, with newfound access to parts of our creative psyches that we hadn’t yet brought into Coco & Clair Clair. We worried less but cared more, which felt powerfully feminine.”
