"Mexico" by Sophie Auster

New York City singer/songwriter Sophie Auster, will release her new album Next Time, April 12th via Fieldhouse/BMG. Ahead of the album’s arrival, Auster has shared the single “Mexico,” the track follows the previously-released single “Dance With Me.” Auster’s tour will kicks off at SXSW in Austin and will take Auster through the States and then to Europe, ending in Portugal.

Written in 2016, the music was produced by Swedish musician Tore Johansson (New Order, Tom Jones, a-Ha), who Auster reached out to before flying to Sweden for the recording sessions. ‘Next Time’ marks her first time recording abroad in a completely isolated space—the ensuing sound, lush orchestral fantasies of romances abroad (“Mexico”), poetic remembrances of heartbreak (“Black Water”) and reflections on a unified ecstatic love (“Dance With Me”) are all threaded together by Auster’s haunting voice.

“Mexico” will be featured in John Turturro’s new film, Going Places, a spinoff of The Big Lebowski, centered around the notable character Jesus Quintana. The film also stars Audrey Tautou, Bobby Cannavale, Susan Sarandon, and Pete Davidson.
