Samia Unveils New Album ‘Honey’, First Single, and 2023 Tour Dates

29th September 2022 | Category: Concerts

Samia has unveiled her upcoming sophomore album, Honey, which will arrive on January 27th, 2023. She previewed the set with its first single, “Kill Her Freak Out,” and a new string of headlining tour dates in 2023.

Honey contains 11 tracks recorded in a North Carolina studio owned by Sylan Esso and was produced mainly by Caleb Wright, who worked on Samia’s 2020 debut album, The Baby. It also features additional production by Rostam and contributions from Christian Lee Hutson, Briston Maroney, Jake Luppen of Hippo Campus, and Raffaella.

“This record is about learning to see the love around you,” Samia shared in a statement. 

“I was trying to imagine looking back at the end of life and what I’d have to say about it right now. This is a little bit of it. Telling stories, making amends, trying to show people I love them.”

“I wrote ‘Kill Her Freak Out’ at my loneliest and most delusional,” she explained. “I’d been quieting my true feelings for fear that someone would leave. The chorus is a reaction to constantly downplaying the emotions that felt wrong; it was cathartic to say the opposite of what I’d been saying for so long to this person I was trying to impress.” Thankfully, she added, “I didn’t want to kill anyone, obviously, I just wanted to yell.”

Before the new album arrives, Samia is set to support Wallows for back-to-back Los Angeles shows in September, followed by a lengthy European tour opening for Maggie Rogers that runs through the end of 2022. She’ll resume live performances in 2023 for a North American headlining tour in that kicks off in February.
