Debby Friday preps debut album for Sub Pop, touring, shares “SO HARD TO TELL”
Debby Friday has announced her debut album, GOOD LUCK, which will be out March 24 via Sub Pop. The Nigerian-born, currently Toronto-based artist co-produced the album with Graham Walsh (METZ, Holy Fuck), and it follows her 2019 Death Drive EP.
The first single from GOOD LUCK is "SO HARD TO TELL," which rides on a swaying electronic groove. “I have a lower register and speak with vocal fry so I don’t know what came over me when I made this track," says Debby. "I have never in my life sung like this before and I had no idea I could even make these kinds of sounds with my voice. There’s no pitch effects on ‘SO HARD TO TELL,’ it’s all me."
You can watch the "SO HARD TO TELL" video, codirected by Debby and Kevan Funk, below.
