    Soccer Mommy has announced a new album called Sometimes, Forever. The third LP from Sophie Allison arrives June 24th via Loma Vista, while first single “Shotgun” is available to stream now.

    After working with indie producer Gabe Wax for 2018’s Clean and 2020’s color theory, Soccer Mommy enlisted Daniel Lopatin, the electronic producer behind Oneohtrix Point Never, for Sometimes, Forever. The album picks up where color theory left off, blending lush synths with Allison’s perennial fixation with 2000s pop. The record gets its title from the concept that neither sorrow nor happiness is permanent — that our strongest emotions feel like they’ll last forever, but quickly get brushed aside by something new. 

    “Sorrow and emptiness will pass, but they will always come back around — as will joy,” Allison said of the album’s theme. “At some point you’re forced to say, I’ll just have to take both.”

    First single “Shotgun” takes these conflicting feelings in stride, pairing a dark, tense fuzz guitar riff with a whooshing, singalong chorus. Even the lyrics shadow this juxtaposition, as Allison bemoans a lover’s coffee and menthol-stained breath before conceding, “Whenever you want me I’ll be around/ I’m a bullet in a shotgun, waiting to sound.”

    Allison explained “Shotgun”‘s sense of devotion in a statement. “‘Shotgun’ is all about the joys of losing yourself in love,” she said. “I wanted it to capture the little moments in a relationship that stick with you.” The track comes with a fourth wall-breaking video by Kevin Lombardo, where Allison performs the song from her bedroom — which is quickly revealed to be a set.

    Soccer Mommy is currently in the midst of a US tour in support of color theory, but come June, she’ll mark the release of Sometimes, Forever with a tour of the UK and Europe. You can find all of the artist’s tour dates below, and grab tickets via Ticketmaster.
