Marie Davidson has announced her new album, Working Class Woman, and dropped its first single, “So Right.”
Over the course of three solo albums, including her 2016 breakthrough Adieux Au Dancefloor, the Montreal artist has crafted musical touchstones to call her own—many of them on full display in “So Right.” Those include vocals that are spoken rather than sung and a preference for the subtle, but always with the dancefloor in mind. The opening lines of “So Right” sum it up: “Tell me, are you / Sexual / Conceptual?”
This single is one of ten tracks that make up Working Class Woman, which will be out October 5 as her debut on Ninja Tune. The album, Davidson said in a press release, is “egotistical” in its biographical focus. “It comes from my brain, through my own experiences: the suffering and the humor, the fun and the darkness to be Marie Davidson,” she commented.
Davidson also listed the influences on her creative process for the album: the psychologist Alice Miller, physician Gabor Maté and the book Psychomagic, authored by filmmaker Alejandro Jodorowsky. Intriguing stuff.
