2023’s rising star, Gracie Abrams is gearing up for the biggest year of her career so far with the release of her debut album, Good Riddance, a tour for said album, and opening for up to 30 stops on Taylor Swift’s, The Eras Tour.
With 2 EPs since 2020, fans have been waiting … slightly patiently … more so incredibly eager (as they should be) for this announcement, and we’re sure this album will be exceeding all of their expectations.
We are already expecting an incredibly emotionally raw album, which is what we love about Gracie and what makes her music so special. Stating in her announcement on Instagram, Gracie expresses her gratitude for the experience of creating this album, and we’re incredibly glad this has been a cathartic experience for her, as much as it will be for us listening.
Produced by a close friend of Gracie’s, Aaron Dessner, you may know him from the likes of folklore, evermore, ‘Skinny Love’ by Birdy, and multiple more tracks, including ones from Girl in Red, and Bon Iver. We’ve seen Aaron on many vulnerable songs, he is able to protect the emotional integrity whilst bringing us an absolute musical masterpiece.
Gracie previously teased the track ‘Where do we go now,’ during a small run of free, intimate gigs around Europe in the fall, in partnership with The Circle Sessions, and it is finally being released on Friday 13th January, alongside a music video, which we can only assume to be absolutely stunning, á la all of Gracie’s previous visuals.
“You’re the best in my life and I lost you” … Where do we go now?? To therapy.
Now, if we were in charge of The Good Riddance Tour setlist, here are a few suggestions from Gracie’s previously released music that we’d have…
‘Rockland’ – This Is What It Feels Like – …She wouldn’t like her even if she was nicer
‘Camden’ – This Is What It Feels Like – We need to cry a little, sorry
‘Feels Like‘ – This Is What It Feels Like – We still aren’t over this opening from the TIWIFS tour
‘Long Sleeves’ – minor – Crying again
‘21‘ – minor – Is it really a Gracie show if the crowd isn’t screaming ‘sorry?’ during the second verse
‘Mess It Up’ – because it’s a bop of course
We’re also manifesting the release of ‘Amelie’ and perhaps another Taylor Swift cover!
