Los Angeles singer/songwriter Phoebe Bridgers drew some attention back in January for her single “Smoke Signals” and in 2015 also released a three-song single, Killer, produced by Ryan Adams. Now the 22-year-old is releasing her debut album, Stranger in the Alps, on September 22 via Dead Oceans. Previously she shared a lyric video for its first single, “Motion Sickness” (which was one of our Songs of the Week), as well as a video for “Motion Sickness.” Now she has shared another song from the album, the very sad but beautiful “Funeral,” as she laments “Jesus Christ I’m so blue all the time.” It was shared via a lyric video in which she sings the song against a black background, with it looking like she is behind a rainy window, as lyrics appear to the right of her. Watch it below, followed by her upcoming tour dates, including some dates opening for Conor Oberst and others supporting The War on Drugs.

Tony Berg and Ethan Gruska produced Stranger in the Alps. Bridgers had this to say about the album in a previous press release: “I wasn’t trying to be too lo-fi, too hi-fi, too self-serious, too disingenuous…I feel pretty confident that I’m finding my voice. I wanted the album to completely represent who I am and these songs are representative of what I set out to do.”
