Punisher out now via Dead Oceans
Last month, Phoebe Bridgers released hersecond solo album, Punisher, to international acclaim. A deluge of rave reviews and cover features were followed by her first Top 10 album in the UK (entering the Official Albums Chart at Number 6), a Number 1 in the UK’s Official Record Store Chart, as well her first Number 1 on a BillboardChart (“Emerging Artists”) in the US and two Number 1 US Radio Chart Placements, on FMBQ’s Non-Comm and College Radio Charts. Her recent single “I See You” was also added to the B-List at BBC Radio 1 whereas “Kyoto” was on the A-List at BBC 6 Music.
Today, she unveils the third video from Punisher, a creepy and dramatic companion to the album’s rousing closer “I Know The End”. Directed by Alissa Torvinen, the video includes a finalé shot at Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum. Described by Rolling Stone as a “sound-collage crescendo… with a disorienting jolt of choking pop dystopia, as Bridgers zooms out on a fractured American heartland of slaughterhouses, outlet malls and slot machines that pass by endlessly”, “I Know The End” has been singled out by fans and critics alike as one of Bridgers’ most potent songs to date.
She also appears as part of the line up for Newport Folk Festival’s Folk On Revival Weekend. She’s featured in the ticketed event as part of the Mavis Staples Birthday Celebration, recorded in LA at The Theater at the Ace Hotel in May 2019. Tickets for the virtual event – taking place July 31st – August 2nd – are available from https://newportfolk.org/revival. Proceeds go to support the work of Newport Festivals Foundation for artists and music education.
One of the most critically acclaimed albums of the year so far, Punisher followsBridgers’ debut, Stranger in The Alps (2017),the boygenius EP with Julien Baker & Lucy Dacus (2018), and Better Oblivion Community Center, a collaboration with Conor Oberst (2019).
