I am so PROUD to announce that I have a NEW ALBUM COMING OUT ON NOV 8 and it's called…. CHAMPION and you can preorder it now! I truly feel like this is the most vulnerable music I've ever written. I decided to not hide behind my own metaphors and poetry and however difficult it was to write, I told the truth. I wrote this in the midst of a breakup and I truly felt so alone. In hindsight, I think I wrote the album that I needed to hear at that time. So, my hope is that it does the same for you. I hope this album can be the hand that wipes the tears from your cheeks, the shiver down your spine when you feel like yourself again, and the lightness in your spirit when you have closure…even if its just for a fleeting moment. Thank you for allowing me to be so vulnerable and I can’t wait for this to be in the world. I also released a new song called JEKYLL & HIDE today off the album. The title is spelt Hide not Hyde. GET IT!??! HEHE!!!! Word play gets me way too hype. I wrote this one with @kflay and it was produced by @iamjoellittle . In the chorus, we wrote "are you Jekyll & Hyde-ing me?" as a way to describe the chaotic feeling of dating someone who has two very different sides. I hope you like it. And if you don't, please don't tell me. I'm far too sensitive to hear that.
Her critically acclaimed debut album Church Of Scars set the bar high for this sophomore album, which included her break out single “River” that went Certified Gold in Australia. But this 10 track LP will leave fans anything but disappointed. Debuting in Australia at #3, the album is undeniably a breakup album; raw and intimate, with Bishop allowing the listener to feel the emotions through her voice. You can check it out below.
