Sky Ferreira has released her first single in more than three years, ‘Don’t Forget’.

It is the actor and singer’s first new music since 2019’s ‘Downhill Lullaby’ and is slated to be on her long-awaited second album ‘Masochism’.

Co-written with dream pop artist Tamaryn Brown, Ferreira explained the inspiration for the song in an interview with Vulture.

She said: “I felt very stifled for a long time, and I still do. It’s not that I wanted to burn people’s houses on fire or something; it is a little more symbolic. It’s about being put in these situations for a long time. It’s a bit of freeing myself, but not in the most conventional way. Because I don’t feel free, necessarily.”

Ferreira also noted the personal aspects of the song: “I’m not trying to throw everyone under the bus yet. Because that’s the thing: How do I say what I’ve been going through without having to become a victim to it or it becoming some narrative? Then my whole record becomes that. In my mind it’s like, ‘You don’t get to do that to me.’”

‘Masochism’ is said to be Ferreira’s much-hyped follow-up to 2013’s critically acclaimed ‘Night Time, My Time’.

Originally scheduled for release in 2015, it has been pushed back several times.

Earlier this year, Ferreira insisted that the album will be coming out some time in 2022.

Despite not releasing an album in nine years, Ferreira has remained productive. She has made a number of film appearances in movies such as Baby Driver, Elvis & Nixon and The Trust alongside Nicolas Cage.

She has also collaborated with a number of other artists including Charli XCX, Primal Scream and Beck.

Earlier this year, Ferreira released a previously unheard cover of David Bowie’s ‘All the Madmen’ to commemorate the legend’s 74th birthday.
