The debut sample of her upcoming album, “Guts,” has just been released.
Rejoice as Olivia Rodrigo makes a triumphant return! Feast your eyes on the captivating music video for her latest single, “Vampire,” marking her first release since her 2021 debut album, Sour. Directed by the talented Petra Collins, who previously helmed the visually stunning “Good 4 U” video, this new masterpiece is not to be missed. Watch it below!
With its sharp lyrics aimed at an undisclosed target, the latest track unveils the powerful words, “bloodsucker, fame fucker, bleedin’ me dry like a goddamn vampire.” In the edited version of the song, “fame fucker” is replaced with “dream crusher,” while “goddamn” is toned down to “damn.” Olivia Rodrigo joined forces once again with Daniel Nigro, a key collaborator from her debut album, to create the captivating piece titled “Vampire.”
During an interview with Zane Lowe on Apple Music, Olivia Rodrigo delved into the creative direction of her latest song. Reflecting on her musical influences, she revealed, “I grew up listening to a lot of heavier music, and it has always resonated with me. However, in my day-to-day life, I don’t often have the opportunity to express those feelings of anger and chaos, to embrace the messy side and disrupt things.” She continued, emphasizing the liberating power of music, “That’s why I find solace in music, because it allows me the freedom to convey emotions that may be suppressed in my everyday life. It’s an outlet where I can explore the raw and unfiltered aspects of my being.”
Olivia Rodrigo’s highly anticipated forthcoming album, titled “Guts,” is scheduled to be released on September 8 through Geffen Records. In her own words, the singer-songwriter describes the album as a reflection of “growing pains” and the journey of self-discovery. Elaborating on the album’s theme, Rodrigo shared in press materials, “Between the ages of 18 and 20, I feel like I experienced a decade’s worth of growth. It was a period filled with intense awkwardness and transformative changes. I believe that’s all a natural part of personal evolution, and I hope the album captures that essence.”
Following her remarkable achievement of winning three Grammy Awards in 2022, including Best New Artist, Best Pop Vocal Album, and Best Pop Solo Performance, Olivia Rodrigo is making a highly anticipated return. After the success of her album Sour, she treated fans to two Disney+ specials, Sour Prom and the documentary Driving Home 2 U (A Sour Film). While on tour, Rodrigo fearlessly used her platform to advocate for abortion rights, particularly in the wake of the Supreme Court’s decision to overturn Roe v. Wade.
Her live performances showcased memorable collaborations, such as joining forces with Billy Joel for captivating renditions of “Deja Vu” and “Uptown Girl.” Additionally, she had the honor of inducting Alanis Morissette into the Canadian Songwriters Hall of Fame, sharing a mesmerizing performance of “Torn” with Natalie Imbruglia, and delivering a stunning rendition of “You’re So Vain” during Carly Simon’s induction into the esteemed corridors of the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame.
Earlier this year, Rodrigo gave fans a tantalizing glimpse of what’s to come through a Twitter video featuring Daniel Nigro, hinting at the arrival of new music that has generated immense excitement among her dedicated fan base.
