Acclaimed singer-songwriter Sasha Alex Sloan announces her forthcoming sophomore album, I Blame The World, set for release on Friday, May 13 via RCA Records.
The follow-up to her 2020 critically praised debut, Only Child, I Blame The World finds Sasha embracing the weary apathy of the world around her and ushering in a bold new era of musicality. Sasha describes the new album as an “honest, non-hopeful” collection of work, distinctly encapsulating the all-too-relatable emotions of despondency and isolation through unflinching and insightfully nuanced lyricism and a razor-sharp sensibility.
Out today, Sasha offers the first taste of the album with “WTF,” a telling indicator of what fans can expect of the project from its title alone.
“Same shit, different year, ‘til I disappear,” croons Sasha on the percussion-led, indie rock-driven record, as she melodically remarks on the endless rat race of life and the sometimes seemingly futile task of finding a bigger purpose. Paired with the release is its music video, echoing the song’s sentiment as Sasha is seen going through the motions of her day, unfazed as flames continue to grow and engulf the room around her.
