The track, which follows previous singles ‘Shotgun’ and ‘Unholy Affliction,’ received a music video directed by Alex Ross Perry. In the video, the Nashville singer performs a warehouse-bound rendition of the track, interspersed with a trip to the cemetery.
‘Bones’ is the latest to be lifted from Soccer Mommy’s forthcoming album, ‘Sometimes, Forever’, which was produced by Daniel Lopatin (Oneohtrix Point Never) and is set for release on June 24. Her third album to date, ‘Sometimes, Forever’ will follow Soccer Mommy’s Grammy-nominated 2020 effort, ‘color theory.’
‘Bones’ was originally intended for a romantic comedy movie, before Soccer Mommy – real name Sophie Allison – decided to keep it for her own body of work. Speaking of the guitar-heavy track, Allison said ‘Bones’ is “about struggling with the parts of yourself that you don’t like in a relationship.”
“It’s about wanting to become better for someone and feeling like you’re standing in your own way,” she said.
Soccer Mommy has also announced new tour dates, including four acoustic in-store-shows at indie record stores across the UK in June. She will perform in Leeds, Liverpool, Brighton and Bristol. Find the full list of dates and venues below and tickets here.
She has also unveiled a US tour – titled Touring, Forever – that will kick off in Indianapolis in October and end in Dallas in December. Support will come from Helena Deland, Lightning Bug and TOPS.
A portion of proceeds from pre-sale tickets sold via the Soccer Mommy website will be donated to Planned Parenthood. Pre-sale begins today, Thursday May 19 at 10am local time, and general on-sale begins a day later on Friday May 20 at 10am local. Find the full list of venues and dates below and find tickets here.
