Gracie Abrams Releases Debut Project “Minor”: Streaming
- Los Angeles-based singer-songwriter Gracie Abrams released her debut project “Minor” on July 14, 2020.
The project contains 7-track including preceding singles and four new songs. The project was first announced on the Instagram back in April.
From the project, she dropped a new music video for “Friend” directed by Alex Lill.
She told Zane Lowe on Apple Betas 1 radio show about the project, “I don't feel like I'm very tough all the time. But I don't know, I think just trusting what I'm saying is all I can really do. I think the reason that I care about this project, because I never really say that I like what I make, because I think I am nervous that I'm going to come across in some way. I just, honestly - It's such a twisted thing and I honestly think that a lot of women struggle with talking about what they actually like about themselves. I think especially in music can feel like you're being judged, which is wrong and I need to step outside of that. But I'm really proud of this project because I feel like I could not have been more honest with myself and that's all I could ask for, I guess.”
She said of the new song “Friend”, “I feel like normally when I'm writing about any of my relationships with anyone in my life, I'm always coming at it from a place of… almost a self pity. This song came from a different place and it was more of anger, frustration, disgust with someone that you used to love.”
She already plans to create the next project. “But also already, the way that I'm thinking about the next project, I'm really relieved that these songs are existing independently. Because I think I want to be doing more self reflection in a way where it's actually confronting the reality of the situation, not just centering myself in relationships and experiences. And honestly, I think I'm kind of right now growing out of older habits that really served Minor, but that I don't think would serve music going forward. Because I don't want to live in the same space forever. And because at a certain point, it's just complaining and that's unattractive.”
