Sad13 announces new LP ‘Haunted Painting,’ shares “Ghost (of a Good Time)” video
Speedy Ortiz's Sadie Dupuis will release Haunted Painting, her new album as Sad13, on September 25 via her own label, Wax Nine. The album was made in a few different studios across the U.S., including John Vanderslice's Tiny Telephone in San Francisco, and New Monkey Studio in Van Nuys, California (which was built by Elliott Smith) and for it she exclusively worked with women engineers.
Haunted Painting also features guest vocals from Helado Negro’s Roberto Lange, Deerhoof’s Satomi Matsuzaki, Tune-Yards' Merrill Garbus, and Pile’s Rick Maguire. “I worked on Haunted Painting throughout 2019, writing, arranging and recording from home, then finishing the songs in studios around the country in between Speedy's fly-in dates,” says Dupuis. “It's maximalist, and more true to me and my tastes than any record I've done.”
The new single from the record is "Ghost (of a Good Time)," which Sadie describes as a "party song about not going out.” The video has her partying with those ghosts and you can watch it below.
Sad13 is one of the many artists who are contributing '00s covers to the Save Stereogum compilation, and she also covered Fountains of Wayne's "A Fine Day for a Parade" for Adam Schlesinger tribute album Saving for a Custom Van.
