Olivia Rodrigo has released her new single ‘vampire’.

It’s a cut from her just-announced new album, ‘GUTS’. The new record will arrive on 8th September, and was recorded with her ‘SOUR’ collaborator Daniel Nigro.

“For me, this album is about growing pains and trying to figure out who I am at this point in my life,” she explains. “I feel like I grew 10 years between the ages of 18 and 20—it was such an intense period of awkwardness and change. I think that’s all just a natural part of growth, and hopefully the album reflects that.”

Of the new single, she adds: “I was upset about a certain situation and went to the studio alone and sat down at the grand piano, and the chords and melody and lyrics just poured out of me — almost like an out-of-body experience. It’s a song about feeling confused and hurt, and at first I thought it was meant to be a piano ballad. But when Dan and I started working on it, we juxtaposed the lyrics with these big drums and crazy tempo changes. So now it’s like a heartbreak song you can dance to.”
