Boygenius – the trio comprising Phoebe Bridgers, Lucy Dacus and Julien Baker – will release their debut studio album, ‘The Record’, on March 31 via Polydor/Interscope (pre-order here).
The band are scheduled to play their first-ever UK shows in London and Halifax shortly before their appearance at Connect Festival. Boygenius will also perform at Coachella 2023 next month.
Fred Again.. dropped the latest instalment of his ongoing diaristic album series, ‘Actual Life 3 (January 1 – September 9 2022)’, last October. The record landed at Number 28 on NME‘s best 50 albums of 2022 list.
In a five-star review of the producer’s gig in Brixton in December, NME said that “Fred again.., the conductor of it all, has arrived as a true star”.
