New Music Friday: Emily I’m Sorry by boygenius

This week has seen a lot of good singles portending new albums I’m really excited about. There were new songs by Peter Gabriel, Arlo Parks, and Daughter just to name a few. However, the most exciting drop of the week was not one, not two, but three songs off the new boygenius album, The Record, due out on March 31! This is the most exciting news ever. boygenius is a supergroup composed of Phoebe Bridgers, Lucy Dacus, and Julien Baker. They put out an EP back in 2016 and that seemed like maybe that was that. But then seemingly out of nowhere they announced the band was back together and putting out an actual full length album. There is a suggestion that they will tour behind it. Right now the only date that is listed is for Coachella, which you could not pay me enough money to go to. So hopefully they tour somewhere near me this time, and if they don’t I’m probably gonna have to travel to see them because I don’t want to miss out again. Of the three songs they released, I’m sharing “Emily I’m Sorry” because I think it showcases the way their three voices interplay with each other in a beautiful way. I can’t wait for the full album. Oh, and I also recommend reading this Rolling Stone cover story about them.
