Phoebe Bridgers releases new single I See You, and announces ‘virtual world tour’
The single was originally titled ICU, but, well – recent events.
Phoebe Bridgers has released a new single, I See You, taken from her upcoming album Punisher.
The song is about Bridgers’ ex-boyfriend/drummer Marshall Vore, who co-wrote the song with her. “It’s about my breakup with my drummer”, Bridgers explains. “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”.
The single is the second from Punisher, following Kyoto and Garden Song. The record, due for release on 19 June, follows her debut Stranger In The Alps, released in 2017.
Alongside the new single, Bridgers has also shared her reworked ‘touring’ plans for 2020 – she was originally due to support The 1975 this summer, but like basically all live music events, that’s been postponed. Instead, she’s conducting a ‘world tour’ from her house, changing venues (rooms) and stages (hosting magazines).
The dates for the tour are below:
26 May – Kitchen, w/ Hooligan Magazine, 8 PM ET
28 May – Bathroom, w/ Noisey/Vice, 8 PM ET
4 June – Bed, w/ DIY Magazine, 7 PM BST
6 June – Bed, TBD
