Olivia Rodrigo just announced her debut album SOUR will be dropping in May, and after peeping the tracklist we’re highly considering breaking up with bae before it does, just to get the full sad girl experience.
Set to debut on May 21, Sour will feature both of Rodrigo’s previously released singles, “ deja vu” and her breakout hit “drivers license,” along with 9 additional songs for a total of 11 tracks.
Making the surprise announcement across all her social media accounts, Olivia kept the SOUR message short and sweet with the caption, “my debut album SOUR out may 21st ahhhhhhhh,” alongside two images of the front and back cover art of her album. Which sees the singer flashing her tongue at the camera with letter stickers spelling out “sour,” along with butterfly, smiley face and other various shaped stickers covering her unamused face.
If either of Olivia’s already released tracks are any indication of what’s to come from this album we’re suggesting everyone follow suit and properly set themselves up for that single spring vibe. If you’re in love or whatever than maybe just for the day, y’know only to relate to what will no doubt be an album full of melancholy, break-up, girl power infused tunes filled with forlorn choruses and catchy hooks.
A bit of backstory, in January, Rodrigo accelerated onto the music scene with “drivers license,” shattering a slew of streaming records and landing herself atop the Billboard Hot 100 chart. Her second single, “deja vu,” drew comparable acclaim and debuted at No. 8 on the Billboard Hot 100 — three spots below “drivers license,” which now sits at No. 5. Before any of that, Rodrigo was best known for playing the lead in the Disney+ series, High School Musical: The Musical: The Series.
Shortly after the big reveal, Olivia went on IG live to talk about her upcoming album. “Lots of the fan favorites didn’t make the album and I’m just so appreciative that you guys even listened to the stuff on Instagram that I’ve posted,” she said. “I think you’re really gonna love the ones that are on the record. I worked really hard to write them and produce them in a really unique way. I actually just finished a week or two ago.”
Noticeably not on the tracklist… a song called “sour,” which Olivia noted that she tried to write but couldn’t, and also shared that most of her songs were written when she was around 17-years-old (lol as in last year).
So what’s the consensus, you gonna be all about that single life with us on May 21, sipping that SOUR tea and singing along to those side-eye sad girl songs or what?
