Blondshell has shared her take of The Cranberries’ “Disappointment"

Blondshell has shared with fans a special treat, with her take of The Cranberries’ “Disappointment,” a track the artist played all last month on her tour with Suki Waterhouse. Blondshell releases her self-titled debut album on April 7th via Partisan Records (Fontaines DC).

Of the track, Blondshell aka: Sabrina Teitelbaum says, “I wanted to sing a song off of No Need To Argue, which is one of my favorite albums ever. Dolores’ voice carries so much emotion throughout the entire album, not just on the big hits like ‘Zombie,’ but on the more understated songs as well. ‘Disappointment’ hits me so hard because it feels like heartbreak disguised as apathy. I wanted to sing the song how I heard it, with the intensity of the pain behind those airy, relaxed vocals and drums.”

Blondshell is also excited to announce her first headline tour of North America. The dates kick off July 7 in Portland, OR and conclude in San Francisco, CA on August 4. Along the way she will stop in New York City on July 19 and Los Angeles, CA on August 2. Brooklyn’s Hello Mary will be the support for most of the tour. Additionally, Blondshell will make her return to Austin for SXSW 2023 followed by a headline tour of the UK and Europe and slots at The Great Escape, London Calling, Wide Awake Festival, and Primavera Sound.

Born and raised in New York City, Teitelbaum moved to Los Angeles for music school in 2015.Entering USC’s Pop Program, she was swept into a context where the brooding pop legacies of Lorde and Lana Del Rey reigned. She dropped out after two years, but while there studied classic and jazz theory, and the art of harmonies, and found herself writing songs inside the world of pop studio sessions.

The biggest gift the pop machine gave her was the stark clarity of realizing that she didn’t quite belong there. Her music was increasingly too raw and intense to easily categorize, and after finishing her last full-on pop EP with producer Yves Rothman (Yves Tumor, Girlpool, Porches) at the start of the pandemic, she gave herself permission to write without expectation. She began penning songs just for herself, with no thought that she would release them. The process emboldened her. Subtracting self-consciousness became a catalyst for the lucid songs of Blondshell, on which her experiences all coalesce to form her truest expressions of self yet. “It was me, as a person, in my songs,” she says. When she showed a few to Rothman, he encouraged her to write an album, joining a chorus of friends saying, “This is you.”
