SAMIA Shares Video For "Honey" Ahead Of Sophomore Album Release 'Honey' out January 27th via Grand Jury and DSPs
Samia Shares Video For "Honey"

Samia has shared two new songs off her highly forthcoming album Honey, which drops on January 27th, 2023 via Grand Jury Music : “ Breathing Song ,” and the album’s title track, accompanied by a video directed by longtime collaborator Jacq Justice .

Samia shares: Tried writing “Breathing Song” a thousand times and couldn’t get it right. Played one of its iterations for Molly Sarlé on zoom and she was like “you just told me a really powerful story before you played this, write it again and just tell the story,” so I did; I just said what happened, from my perspective. Got to play it for her again when it was finished and we cried. “Honey” takes place in the same world as “Breathing Song.” It’s about always being drunk enough that you don’t have to look around. To me it’s the saddest song I’ve ever written, because it’s mocking my attempt to convince people I was good. Caleb Wright turned it into a campfire song, though, and I love that it can be interpreted as fun too.

was recorded at North Carolina studio Betty’s –- owned and operated by Sylvan Esso’s Nick Sandborn and Amelia Meath , frequent touring partners of Samia’s. It was produced by Caleb Wright , part of the team that helmed The Baby, Samia’s “ debut ” and a founding member of one of Samia’s favorite bands, The Happy Children. It features some of her nearest and dearest friends: Christian Lee Hutson , Briston Maroney , Jake Luppen , Raffaella . Its songs were road tested for her devotees while opening for Lucy Dacus , Courtney Barnett , and more.

Samia completed a leg of UK tour in November supporting Maggie Rogers that found Samia winning over huge audiences, along with a Sold-Out headline show at London’s XOYO where she was joined onstage by Orla Gartland and Katie Gregson-Macleod (with notable attendees including King Krule and Okay Kaya).Samia will embark on a headline tour of North America following the release of Honey that runs from early February into March.
