A US singer has announced that she is set to release an album inspired by hit Netflix show Stranger Things.
Singer-songwriter Ingrid Michaelson unveiled the news on Wednesday (January 17) in a tweet that read: “As you all may (or may not know) I am OBSESSED with @Stranger_Things. So obsessed, I’m writing a record inspired by the show! Release date TBA. Stay tuned my Stranger Babies…the 80’s are comin atcha!”.
She has revealed to Billboard that the album will be called ‘Stranger Songs’ and that it will be released when season three of the show premieres (that date is not currently known).
“Finding your connection to another’s art isn’t something I’ve ever built a record on but I feel so inspired by the world Stranger Things has created,” Michaelson said.
“This show brings me back to a place of safety and comfort when everything seemed simple. Especially after losing my parents, the idea of living in that space, even for an hour at a time, is not only intoxicating, it’s necessary. I started writing poems inspired by the show and I realised how connected I was to it and my childhood and to that innocence lost.”
