Los Angele artist Baby FuzZ has released his newest single “Weekend Blues” from his upcoming sophomore concept album Welcome To The Future, due out this fall.
Baby FuzZ is the audiovisual absurdist glam rock brainchild of producer and songwriter Sterling Fox. After producing Lan Del Rey’s “Video Games,” Fox was on his way to becoming one of the most in-demand and successful pop songwriters in the business having written with and for artists Madonna, Max Martin, Elle King, Avicii, Lana Del Rey, Britney Spears and more. Upon the election of Donald Trump, and at the peak of Fox’s songwriting career he disappeared from music and split for Canada, spending a year in Montreal, reemerging as Baby FuzZ.
Baby FuzZ unapologetically jumps all over the genre map, with songs ranging from folk ballads to punk anthems and everything in between. As diverse as the music is, the lyrics are a singular and hyper self-aware narrative with strong political and social undertones.
If Plastic Paradise was the first contact, this new album, Welcome To The Future is sure to be Baby FuzZ’s full-blown alien invasion. The uninhibited mariachi and pop-influenced “Weekend Blues” gives the listener a taste of what’s to come from the wild concept album that is poignantly relevant to a dystopian America, currently weathering pandemic amidst a cultural crisis. The majority of Welcome To The Future was written and recorded during quarantine with heavy doses of conservationism, disguised symbolism, and good old fashioned American absurdity. This first song offering was written from the point of view of a lonely person who goes to a party and dissects the universe in their head instead of having fun, and is described by FuzZ as “attempt to make a ‘Dancing Queen’ for incels.”
