Sky Ferreira’s mother has claimed that her daughter’s long-awaited second studio album will finally arrive in March.

Last October marked the eighth anniversary of the release of the California singer’s sole full-length to date, ‘Night Time, My Time’. Ferreira announced that she was working on a follow-up as far back as July of 2014, and confirmed that it would be titled ‘Masochism’ in April of 2015.

However, the record has yet to surface. A single, ‘Downhill Lullaby’, was released in 2019, with a press release at the time promising that the full album would follow the same year. That date was missed, with new no music forthcoming since.

Now, however, Ferreira’s mother, Tonia Lamere, has apparently confirmed what her daughter hinted at in an Instagram post in October – that album two is set for March. “New album coming March,” she wrote on her Instagram story, along with a photograph of Ferreira. The singer had previously said of new music that her next release “comes in like a lion and goes out like a lamb” – referencing an idiom relating to the month of March.

Ferreira has remained busy in the interim, taking on acting roles in films including ‘Elvis & Nixon’, ‘The Trust’ and ‘Baby Driver’ – she contributed a cover of Commodores’ ‘Easy’ to the latter’s soundtrack. She also made a guest appearance on the 2017 revival of ‘Twin Peaks’.

Musical collaborations since ‘Night Time, My Time’, meanwhile, include appearances on Primal Scream’s ‘Where the Light Gets In’ in 2016, The Jesus and Mary Chain’s ‘Black and Blues’ a year later, and Charli XCX’s ‘Cross You Out’ in 2019.

Ferreira posed for the October 2016 issue of Playboy, in a shoot that was intended as a “visual introduction” to ‘Masochism’. By 2018, she had attributed the record’s delays to her being a “perfectionist” in an Instagram post. In 2019, around the time ‘Downhill Lullaby’ was released, she told Pitchfork that both that track and another, as-yet-unreleased new song, ‘Don’t Forget’, would be on the album. 

She uploaded a cover of ’Til Tuesday’s ‘Voices Carry’ to her Soundcloud in the summer of 2018, after an online drama that saw her locked out of her account on the platform. Based on new songs that have been debuted live or teased online, other possible tracks that could make it onto ‘Masochism’ include ‘Descending’, ‘Mourning After’, ‘Gaslight’, ‘I Pray for Rain’, ‘All My Lovers Die’ and ‘Love Street’, as well as a title track. Ferreira has named Ariel Rechtshaid, Justin Raisen, Mike Dean and Bobby Gillespie as producers on the record.
