Self Esteem announces second album with title-track "Prioritise Pleasure"

Self Esteem has announced her upcoming second album Prioritise Pleasure, alongside releasing the title-track as the lead single.

After returning with "I Do This All The Time" in April, Self Esteem has announced details of her follow-up to 2019's Compliments Please album.

The album news arrives alongside the title-track, which is teamed with a self-directed video.

Self Esteem, real name Rebecca Lucy Taylor, says of the song and video, "The song is a wide screen mantra, remembering to put myself first and in turn making myself a better, more present person. My journey to accept myself is far from over, but over the last few years some of the age old simple shit has started to finally kick in. Love yourself, be in the moment, put your needs first - that all used to feel so abstract and impossible but with a bit of will power (and writing a tonne of songs about it), I finally not only see the benefits but am actively enjoying them."

Taylor adds, "The video is of course a homage to Madonna’s blonde ambition tour and also a testament to how hard work pays off. Me and the girls in the band did lots of zoom rehearsals and us nailing this choreo was a really triumphant moment for us, and choreographer Stuart Rogers who never doubts we’ll get there."

Self Esteem says the second album is "13 songs of cleansing myself of the guilt and fear of being a woman who is ‘too much’ and replacing that very notion with a celebration of myself, of you, of being a human and the way that isn’t always easy or perfect, and that’s ok. Sorry to my parents for the lyric "shave my pussy, that’s just for me" but i think it’s maybe my finest hour!"
