Sky Ferreira released her debut album, Night Time, My Time three years ago. It was an outstanding pop debut, perhaps immediately misunderstood: It was dark and sweet and raw, proving that Ferreira's talent lies in songwriting as much as it does modeling and acting and all the other projects she's invested in. If anything, it left us wanting more.
And so we waited. In the summer of last year, she posted an Instagram video teasing a new track called "Guardian," but that was mostly the first and the last we heard from her...until now. In a new interview with Dazed, Ferreira promises her sophomore full-length, Masochism, will arrive this summer.
She told the publication more about her Maschoism:
"I started writing the lyrics two years ago when I was touring, and that’s when the name came to me. The way I look at it, it’s about going from one thing to another. I’ve learned a lot about myself and my own self-value. Before, in order to feel good about anything there had to be some kind of struggle, a painful way to get to it, otherwise I felt I didn’t really deserve it. Which is a really fucked up way of thinking.
I became a bit of a masochist in every single way – for a while it was like, ‘If it doesn’t hurt then it’s not real.’ That is honestly how I felt. I’m still in the thick of everything changing, but change, like, sucks! It’s good in the long run, but it’s fucking weird and uncomfortable. When I feel like I’ve reached the point where I’m somewhat comfortable with it, that’s when the album ends."
