Blondshell Announces Deluxe Edition Of Self-Titled Album, Shares “Street Rat”

One of this year’s most exciting breakthrough artists, Blondshell (Sabrina Teitelbaum), has announced the special Deluxe Edition of her self-titled debut album, coming this October 6thvia Partisan Records. The resounding success of her music – measured not just in global sold-out tours, TV performances, and rave reviews, but also in Teitelbaum’s ever-deepening resonance with a devoted fan base – has now necessitated its release. Blondshell Deluxe Edition is anchored by new tracks like the open-hearted grunge ballad “Street Rat” and a lilting, Bossa-Nova-esque reworking of “Tarmac” (dubbed “Tarmac 2”). It also features another new song (“It Wasn’t Love”), a previously released standalone single (“Cartoon Earthquake”), and a home demo version of “Kiss City.” She’s celebrating the news by sharing “Street Rat,” and with a performance tonight at LA’s GRAMMY Museum.  

Already a staple of Blondshell’s live set, “Street Rat” is an open-hearted and dreamy grunge ballad. The track was written and recorded during the original album sessions and the accompanying music video directed by Muriel Knudsen was filmed during Blondshell’s sold-out North American summer tour.

Blondshell on “Street Rat”: “I wrote ‘Street Rat’ the day we finished tracking the album so it really feels like part of the same era to me.  If I had written it one day earlier it would’ve been on the album. It’s a song about all of the mental gymnastics behind wanting to give up a bad habit, but not being able to despite knowing you should.”

Blondshell finished up her first-ever headline tour of North America with numerous sold-out shows, including New York, Los Angeles, Chicago, San Francisco, Seattle, Minneapolis and more. Tonight, she will join Bandsplain’s Yasi Salek for a very special conversation and performance at the Grammy Museum.  Tickets are on sale here.  This fall she will be back on the road as the direct support for Liz Phair with dates starting November 7, and has just confirmed an AU/NZ run of Laneway Festival shows for next year.  All dates can be found below:
