Phoebe Bridgers unveils new single "I See You"

20 May 2020, 10:23 | Written by Cerys Kenneally

Phoebe Bridgers is back with "I See You", a third taster of her highly-anticipated second album Punisher.

"I See You" arrives after previous singles "Kyoto" and "Garden Song", and is, Bridgers says, "about my breakup with my drummer".

Bridgers adds, "We dated for a few years, made music every day, and were extremely codependent. We became like family to each other, so our breakup was extremely tough. But if this tells you anything about our relationship, we wrote this song together, just like everything else."

Punisher was written and recorded between summer 2018 and autumn 2019, and sees Bridgers take on a co-producing role alongside frequent collaborators Tony Berg and Ethan Gruska. The album features her band - Marshall Vore (drums), Harrison Whitford (guitar), Emily Retsas (bass) and Nick White (piano) - as well as guest contributions from Conor Oberst, Lucy Dacus, Julien Baker, Blake Mills, Warpaint's Jenny Lee Lindberg, Christian Lee Hutson, Nick Zinner, Jim Keltner, and Bright Eyes' Nathaniel Walcott, who plays horns on "Kyoto".

Since the release of her debut LP Stranger in the Alps, Bridgers has been far from quiet. She released a collaborative EP with boygenius (Lucy Dacus and Julien Baker), and a whole album with Conor Oberst as Better Oblivion Community Center. She's also produced Christian Lee Hutson's forthcoming debut record Beginners, and most recently featured on The 1975's "Jesus Christ 2005 God Bless America" single.

Bridgers has also announced a World, Tour which will see her perform from various rooms in her house, kicking off on 26 May in Bridgers' kitchen at 1am BST.

"I See You" is out now. Phoebe Bridgers' Punisher album is due for release on 19 June via Dead Oceans, and is available to pre-order now.
