Last month, Phoebe Bridgers confirmed details of her second solo album, Punisher, to be released via Dead Oceans on June 19th 2020. Today, she shares another song from the album. Originally entitled “ICU” the song’s spelling has been changed to “I See You” for its release on digital platforms. Bridgers explains the title change with: “*gestures at entire world*”.
Says Bridgers of “I See You”, “It’s about my breakup with my drummer. 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.”
Listen to “I See You” below:
Bridgers has also announced plans for a “Phoebe Bridgers’ World, Tour” – to kick off on May 26th 2020 with a livestream performance from her kitchen and running until June 6th with a show from her bed. Bridgers’ previous touring plans, which included opening for The 1975 in arenas across America, were shelved due to the Covid-19 pandemic. All dates are listed below.
