Today, Brooklyn-based alt-pop singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Sabrina Song announces her debut full-length album You Could Stay In One Spot, and I’d Love You The Same due out June 7. Alongside the long-awaited announcement, Song shares the sweetly reassuring track ‘Okay, Okay,’ out now. The forthcoming carefully curated LP sees the musician take stock of her life as a twenty-something in New York City–reflecting on the love, loss, growth and gratitude–and what may come of it all.
Consisting of ten measured, tender tracks with more live instruments than ever before, the album examines Song’s life and growth during the period of great change that comes post-grad––loved ones moving out of her native New York, balancing day jobs, the ebb and flow of old and new friendships. She found herself overcome with gratitude––for getting older, for having loved ones to miss, for being in love, for making music. Written between 2021 and 2023, the album’s tracklist shows a maturation in Song’s subject matter as she herself continues to come into her own. Having written and self-produced all of her work until this point, Song recruited Torna (Daisy The Great) to co-produce and engineer to complete her vision of a guitar-driven album.
Out today, ‘Okay, Okay’ steadily unfolds like a loving relationship does, and is grounded by a rhythm and melody that matches its soothing lyricism. Through writing this song, it became clear to the singer-songwriter how much easier it is to articulate nuanced emotions through music rather than conversation. Song explains, “‘Okay, Okay’ started as a long list of rambles describing the same thing: How can you fully trust that the person you love feels the same, especially in the beginning? The anxiety of being in love can be so intense because you’re at your most vulnerable, and it’s very easy to self-sabotage out of fear or insecurity.” Hoping the feeling is mutual as she takes a leap into love, Song continues, “This is a song about reassurance: ‘If I could touch the sun / If I could take the pain / I’d do it all for you / Excess with no restraint.'”
