Listen to Sky Ferreira’s ‘Downhill Lullaby’, her first solo song in six years

A fresh preview of her long-awaited second album 'Masochism'

Sky Ferreira has released her brand new song ‘Downhill Lullaby’, marking the release of her first solo material since 2013 – listen to the emotive new track below.

Ferreira is expected to finally release her long-awaited second album ‘Masochism’ in 2019, which will be the follow-up to her 2013 debut ‘Night Time, My Time’. The sophomore record was first announced by the artist back in 2015.

After promising fans that new music would drop this week, Ferreira has now shared the sweeping and grand ‘Downhill Lullaby’. Produced by Dean Hurley, Ferreira and Jorge Elbrecht, the track was recorded in Los Angeles and Copenhagen. Listen to the song below.

A press release promises that ‘Downhill Lullaby’ is “the first taste” of her upcoming album ‘Masochism’, which will be “out later this year”.

In a rare interview with Pitchfork this week, Ferreira spoke about recording her new music and also reflected on her musical background – revealing the career advice Michael Jackson once gave her when she was a child.

Last month, a new poster for the upcoming horror movie Lords of Chaos, which will star Ferreira, was released.

A synopsis for the film reads: “Oslo, 1987: Seventeen-year-old Euronymous (Rory Culkin) is determined to escape his idyllic Scandinavian hometown and create “true Norwegian black metal” with his band, MAYHEM. He’s joined by equally fanatical youths – Dead (Jack Kilmer) and Varg (Emory Cohen). Believing that they’re on the cusp of a musical revolution, the group gets even darker driven by the black metal dogma to spread evil.

“They begin burning down churches throughout the countryside and stealing tombstones for their record store. But when the press catches up with them and Euronymous takes more credit than he’s earned for the group’s violent acts, Varg, fresh out of jail, arranges a dark encounter to settle the score and ultimately determine who the darkest black metal musician is…”
