Bishop Briggs Announces New EP “When Everything Went Dark”, Shares New Song “Baggage”
Los Angeles-based singer-songwriter Bishop Briggs announced her upcoming EP “When Everything Went Dark” would be released on June 23, 2023.
The EP is her first project in four years since the 2019 album “Champion” and comprises 6-track, including preceding singles “High Water” and “superhuman”.
From the EP, she unveiled the third single called “Baggage” on May 12, 2023.
The track was written by Sarah McLaughlin, Jesse Shatkin, and Steph Jones. Produced by Jesse Shatkin.
"I am not perfect. In fact, I'm quite messy. I could say life is messy, which it is, but part of becoming an adult has been acknowledging the messiness that I have too,” Bishop Briggs said of the song. “'Baggage' is the first song where I stand in the mud and triumphantly stomp my feet in it. I can only hope that others feel empowered to own their version of messy and know that they aren't alone in it. I have found that when I unabashedly show my imperfections and my wounds I am growing. So, there you have it, that's my baggage.”
- The accompanying music video was directed by Anastasia Duchess and Kristen Brancaccio.
Bishop Briggs said of the video, “I didn't know how well I could hide my sorrow until I did it. Outwardly I would have fleeting moments of socially acceptable niceties and then the minute I was alone I would dissociate, completely unable to function. How could these two extremities exist in one body? It was and is exhausting. I wanted this music video for 'Baggage' to show that our blue circles aka our trauma can be meticulously hidden even if someone appears okay on the outside. I hope that whoever watches knows that they are not alone and that there's a community of people waiting to be supportive.”
