Phoebe Bridgers, recently announced, her forthcoming release Punisher, will be released on June 19th, via Dead Oceans. Ahead of the release, she has shared another track off the album. Originally entitled “ICU,” the song’s spelling has been changed to “I See You,” for its release on digital platforms. Bridgers explains the title change with: “*gestures at entire world*”.
Says Bridgers of “I See You”, “It’s about my breakup with my drummer. We dated for a few years, made music every day, and were extremely codependent. We became like family to each other, so our breakup was extremely tough. But if this tells you anything about our relationship, we wrote this song together, just like everything else.”
Bridgers has also announced plans for a “Phoebe Bridgers’ World, Tour” – to kick off on May 26 with a livestream performance from her Kitchen and running until June 6 with a show from her Bed. Bridgers’ previous touring plans, which included opening for The 1975 in arenas across America, were shelved due to the Covid-19 pandemic. All dates below. Bridgers released her debut album in 2017 Stranger In The Alps, the boygenius EP with Julien Baker and Lucy Dacus in 2018, and Better Oblivion Community Center, a surprise collaboration with Conor Oberst, in 2019.
