Indigo De Souza Announces New Album “All of This Will End”, Shares New Song “Younger & Dumber”
American singer-songwriter Indigo De Souza announced her third studio album “All of This Will End” would be released on April 29, 2023 via Saddle Creek.
It is her first album in two years since the 2021 album “Any Shape You Take”.
The album features 11-track, produced by Alex Farrar and Indigo De Souza.
“All of This Will End feels more true to me than anything ever has,” Indigo De Souza said. “I have never been more excited about anything in my entire life. I am blessed with the chance to embody my work from a place of absolute truth, and grateful for the support around me in doing so. Let a new era bring us closer to ourselves and to each other. Healing begins with community - it begins with waking the f**k up and dropping into right now.”
From the album, she released the first single called “Younger & Dumber” on February 9, 2023.
The track was written by Indigo De Souza. Produced by Alex Farrar and Indigo De Souza.
- She said of the song, “'Younger and Dumber' is a flood beam of my emotional and spiritual human experience. My growing up defeated by a world brutally littered with trash, violence and grief, and somehow finding beauty, purpose, and boundless love existing in the same place. This song felt really emotionally intense for me when I wrote it. I was sitting in my house and it kind of flowed right to me as if it had already been written by some other force. A lot of the lyrics are a nod to the idea that your experiences make you who you are. I endured some heavy darkness and dysfunction when I was a teenager. But if I hadn't been through those things, I wouldn't be who I am now. When you're young, you don't know any better, but you learn from your experiences, and then you become somebody who's been alive and learning. It's also about how heartbreaking that is; to start as a child with vivid curiosity, innocent imagination and joy, and for the world to end up being kind of brutal to be a part of. This song is a love letter to everyone's inner child. No one can prepare us for how insane it is to be alive. How many times we will have to rise from the ashes and what courage it will take.”
The accompanying music video was directed by Indigo De Souza herself.
She said of the video, “I took psilocybin for the shoot. I have a very specific way of dancing when I'm on mushrooms. The movements feel like electricity rising up from the earth through ancient networks of mycelium. It feels like the trees and plants are moving my body for me and I am just surrendering. It feels so clear to me now more than ever, how important it is to unabashedly embody my truest spirit. Because I am not special, and I'm fleeting, and it feels like it's my purpose to help mobilize others to come home to themselves. To wake from our societal sleepwalk and consider the importance in creating deep connection within community and relationships. To find a preciousness in the time we have and the earth we're nourished by. To see nature in all its primordial magic, as something to learn from and grow with. Something to protect.”
