Hyperpop visionary SOPHIE’s sophomore album will arrive this fall. Due to debut on September 27, the self-titled SOPHIE LP will be the only posthumous release from the artist’s team.

The album will follow her genre-defying 2018 debut, OIL OF EVERY PEARL’S UN-INSIDES, as well as her 2015 singles compilation PRODUCT. The project was helmed by SOPHIE’s longtime studio manager, collaborator and friend Benny Long.

Long had worked on mastering, production and mixing for OIL OF EVERY PEARL’S UN-INSIDES. Prior to SOPHIE’s tragic death in 2021, the two had spent years working on developing the concept and production for her sophomore album

“Sophie didn’t often speak publicly of her private life, preferring to put everything she wanted to articulate in her music,” Long said. “It feels only right to share with the world the music she hoped to release, in the belief that we can all connect with her in this, the form she loved most.”

“This album has always told the story of Sophie’s musical journey, a cacophony of skill and creative vision, eclipsing time and genre. Her unique sound world moves at an emotional level, encouraging the listener to intuitively embrace the ever-evolving landscape of light and dark, soft and hard, to the end of self-love and joyful self-acceptance. Emphasizing contradictions of sound and material, Sophie’s work supersedes the pure aural to create the dimension she dreamed of.”

The lead single from the SOPHIE LP is called “Reason Why” and features BC Kingdom and Kim Petras and has arrived in tandem with the announcement.

Listen to “Reason Why” everywhere now. SOPHIE is due via Transgressive and Future Classic on September 27.
