Debby Friday Signs To Sub Pop

& Announces Debut Album “GOOD LUCK” due March 24th

Shares New Single “SO HARD TO TELL& Tour Dates

Born in Nigeria and now based in Toronto, multi-disciplinary artist DEBBY FRIDAY will release her supernovic, full-length debut album GOOD LUCK  on March 24th via Sub Pop. The album was co-produced and mixed by DEBBY FRIDAY and Graham Walsh (METZ, Holy Fuck) at Candle Recording Studio in Toronto, and mastered by Heba Kadry in New York and the first single from the record “SO HARD TO TELL” is out now.

Of the sublime lead single “SO HARD TO TELL,” FRIDAY offers this, “I have a lower register and speak with vocal fry so I don’t know what came over me when I made this track. I have never in my life sung like this before and I had no idea I could even make these kinds of sounds with my voice. There’s no pitch effects on ‘SO HARD TO TELL,’ it’s all me.”

The video, co-directed by Kevan Funk and DEBBY FRIDAY, sees FRIDAY in prismatic view. Roaming through rocky hillsides, psychedelic forests, ancient stone temples and more, FRIDAY is luminescent and multitudinous – the many versions of herself synthesising into the shape of a burgeoning star.

DEBBY FRIDAY deserves this Sub Pop collaboration, this artist has evolved and dazzled. The immense compositions created will captivate you, clearly shown in the new track “SO HARD TO TELL”. Filled with this voyage of melodious textures, abrasive hits collide with this bed of intricate elements. This raw atmosphere is sculpted with eclectic electronic elements, layering the elements and devouring the ambiance with such an array of rhythmic pulses and this addictive melody. At the core and moving the journey to new depths, the enchanting vocal harmonies sweep with such intensity, gliding over the tones with delicate ease and resonating affection, drama, and this electrifying appeal.

DEBBY FRIDAY’s international headlining tour dates and festival appearances in support of GOOD LUCK begin January 21st and currently run through May 6th, 2023.
