Next month Soccer Mommy will release her new full-length album, Sometimes, Forever, produced by Daniel Lopatin of Oneohtrix Point Never, and today she shares another single off of the forthcoming record. Following lead single “Shotgun” and the spellbinding “Unholy Affliction” is the heart-bursting album opener “Bones.”
Originally written for a rom com, “Bones” is a track that Sophie Allison loved so much she decided not to submit it to the film and keep it for this album instead, and it’s clear why. “Bones” is quintessential Soccer Mommy, featuring sparkling production that highlights the strength of the band as they tear through a dynamic breakdown that nods to the 90s. “Bones is a song about struggling with the parts of yourself that you don’t like in a relationship,” Allison explains. “It’s about wanting to become better for someone and feeling like you’re standing in your own way.” Alongside the single is a new music video from director Alex Ross Perry(Her Smell, Golden Exits), who also directed a Soccer Mommy video for color theory album highlight “yellow is the color of her eyes.”
Soccer Mommy also announces a massive U.S. tour in support of Sometimes, Forever. Presale for the tour, which is aptly titled Touring, Forever, starts Thursday, 5/19 at 10am local, with general on-sale starting Friday, 5/20 at 10 am local.

Sometimes, Forever is boldest and most aesthetically adventurous work yet, and cements Sophie Allison’s status as one of the most gifted songwriters making rock music right now. It sees Allison once again tapping into the turn-of-the-millenium sensibilities she’s known for, as she advances her self-made sonic world beyond the present and into the future with experimental-minded production, an expanded moodboard of vintage touchstones, and some of her most sophisticated songwriting to date. Inspired by the concept that neither sorrow nor happiness is permanent, Sometimes, Forever is a fresh peek into the mind of an artist who synthesizes everything — retro sounds, personal tumult, the relatable disorder of modern life — into original music that feels built to last a long time. Maybe even forever.
