Soccer Mommy has announced her new full-length album, Sometimes, Forever – released 24th June. Produced by Daniel Lopatin of Oneohtrix Point Never, this album sees Sophie Allison tapping into the turn-of-the-millennium sensibilities she’s known for.

The first peek into Sophie Allison’s latest work is “Shotgun,” which likens romance to a chemical high without the gnarly comedown. “‘Shotgun’ is all about the joys of losing yourself in love,” explains Allison. “I wanted it to capture the little moments in a relationship that stick with you.”

Sometimes, Forever is partly inspired by the push and pull between Allison’s desire to make meaningful art and her scepticism about the mechanics of careerism, as well as the artless administrative chaos that comes with it. The Kevin Lombardo-directed video depicts this struggle…

Soccer Mommy has also announced the first Sometimes, Forever tour dates in the UK/EU, with U.S. dates soon to follow. She is on tour now throughout North America in support of her sophomore album color theory.
