Alex Lahey Debuts “The Sky Is Melting”

Alex Lahey has released “The Sky Is Melting,” the track is the final single off her forthcoming album, The Answer Is Always Yes, available May 19th via Liberation. “The Sky Is Melting” sees Lahey examining how she finds comfort in the discomfort, whether it’s reveling in absurdity or turning towards exploration. This time, she’s reveling in the chaos of consuming too many weed gummies. “I went to the desert and did a bunch of edibles and wrote a song about it,” Lahey says. “Definitely not the first person in the world to do it. But maybe it’s the first song to reference both Michael Bolton and an unnamed verified AirBnB host in the same verse.”

This month, Lahey will kick off a North American tour in support of The Answer Is Always Yes, bringing her captivating full-band performance to a slew of cities across the continent.

Where Lahey’s beloved debut I Love You Like A Brother and its 2019 follow-up The Best of Luck Club took their focus through the lens of relationships, The Answer Is Always Yes sees Lahey analyzing her otherness through different lenses, from its isolating effect to the surrealism and humor it instills. As a queer person, Lahey learned how to adapt to a world that wasn’t made for her, to pave her own way, foster her own community, and create her own joy. “Living in a world that wasn’t made for you makes you pretty strong and adaptive, and you find the fun in it,” says Lahey. “It also makes you realize how absurd everything is. With The Answer Is Always Yes, I wanted to get weird because the world is weird, and it’s even weirder when you realize you don’t fit into it all the time.”
