Samia announces second album with lead single "Kill Her Freak Out"

27 September 2022, 14:24 | Written by Cerys Kenneally

Samia has announced her upcoming second album Honey, and has unveiled "Kill Her Freak Out" as the lead outing from the record.

"Kill Her Freak Out" is accompanied by a video directed by Samia and Muriel Margaret, which also stars Lucas Hedges (Manchester by the Sea, Boy Erased), and follows her February covers of songs by The Eagles and The Magnetic Fields.

"I wrote "Kill Her Freak Out" at my loneliest and most delusional," Samia shares. "I’d been quieting my true feelings for fear that someone would leave. The chorus is a reaction to constantly downplaying the emotions that felt wrong; it was cathartic to say the opposite of what I’d been saying for so long to this person I was trying to impress. I didn’t want to kill anyone, obviously, I just wanted to yell. It sort of marks the end of The Baby’s story."

Honey will follow Samia's 2020 debut album The Baby, and was recorded at Sylvan Esso's North Carolina studio Betty's. The album, produced by Caleb Wright, features contributions from Christian Lee Hutson, Briston Maroney, Jake Luppen and Raffaella.

Samia says, "This record is about learning to see the love around you. Sometimes the only thing I can be certain of is the way it feels. Even when I zoom all the way out, the little things matter the most. I was trying to imagine looking back at the end of life and what I'd have to say about it right now. This is a little bit of it. Telling stories, making amends, trying to show people I love them. It's a community record - I made it with Caleb Wright and our friends in the woods in North Carolina."
