SZA unveils new album SOS: Stream

SZA has finally returned with their second album SOS. Stream it below via Apple Music or Spotify.

Coming more than five years after the TDE singer’s breakout debut, Ctrl, the 23-track project features features from Phoebe Bridgers (“Ghost in the Machine”), the late Ol’ Dirty Bastard (“Forgiveless”) and Travis Scott (“Open Arms”). SOS also features the previously released singles “Good Days”, “I Hate U” and “Shirt”.

The artwork for SOS is inspired by a photograph of Princess Diana, the pride of Maplewood, New Jersey recently explained. “I was originally supposed to be on a barge, but in the references I drew for it, I drew the Diana reference,” SZA Hot 97 told SZA. “I just loved how isolated she felt, and it did I wanted to convey the most.”

Prior to the release of SOS, SZA was a musical guest on Saturday Night Live. During her episode, the artist performed “Shirt” and debuted the album track “Blind.” She also appeared in a sketch alongside host Keke Palmer paying tribute to “big boys”.

SZA has not yet announced tour dates in support of SOS, but she is currently slated to headline the Alabama Hangout Fest in May 2023. Get your tickets here.
