Sasha Alex Sloan Releases New Album “I Blame The World”: Streaming
- American singer-songwriter Sasha Alex Sloan, formerly Sasha Sloan, released her sophomore album “I Blame The World” on May 13, 2022 via RCA Records.
It is her first album in two years. The album comprises 13-track, written by Sasha Alex Sloan and her partner King Henry. Produced by Chad Copelin, Dekku, King Henry, Mike Elizondo and Stuart Price.
“This album was written while I was in a dark place. I started looking more outward than inward and that's where the theme of the album stems from,” Sasha Alex Sloan said of the project. “I wanted to express how I was feeling lyrically, while sonically creating a landscape that felt fun.”
She began working on the album after she released the 2020 debut album “Only Child”. She I couldn't go on tour due to the COVID-19 pandemic and decided to make the album.
She told Billboard about what the difference from the debut album to the new album is, “I would say Only Child was a collection of songs I really liked but there wasn't a cohesive theme. With I Blame The World, I made a conscious effort to create a world in which all the songs made sense together. Having that approach from the beginning I think helped make the album feel more whole compared to Only Child.”
- Sasha Alex Sloan shared, “Welcome to 'I blame the world.' I've been calling it my coming of age album (because I'm a boomer now lol) where I started looking more outward than inward. After being stuck in my house for 2+ years, I started to get really angry at everything and everyone around me. I also fell into quite the depression, which is where a lot of these songs stem from. I started asking “why?” which led to songs like “WTF” and “I blame the world.” I also moved to Nashville and everywhere I turned saw “live, laugh, love” signs during my peak depression, which inspired that lol. I hope you don't hate this album and maybe put it on some playlists or something for all the boomers out there. And even if you don't, it's all good because as this album suggests… nothing matters :)”
