Alice Skye Announces New Album ‘I Feel Better But I Don’t Feel Good’

Wegaia/Wemba Wemba songwriter Alice Skye has announced she’ll release her second album I Feel Better But I Don’t Feel Good this July.

Produced by Jen Cloher, the follow-up to 2018’s Friends with Feelings will feature previously-released singles ‘Stay in Bed’, ‘Grand Ideas’ and the album’s title track.

To coincide with the news, Skye has shared new single ‘Party Tricks’, a slow-burner that opens with Skye’s gossamer vocals gliding above brooding, understated keys – all before leading into a cathartic crescendo of distorted guitars. Listen below.

“The chorus kind of says it how I felt. I was stuck in a situation that was just adding to my already warped sense of self. It can be easier to end up in bad relationships that feel comfortable because it’s familiar, than get used to the idea that you deserve more,” Skye says of the song.

“It takes work to see an out and I definitely wrote this song when I was sitting deep in that place. I just wanted a song to wallow in and play really loud.”

The new single and album announcement follows hot on the heels of Skye’s announcement that she’ll head out on a co-headline east coast tour with Elizabeth next month, performing in Adelaide, Sydney, Queensland, Melbourne, Castlemaine and Ballarat.

I Feel Better But I Don’t Feel Good culminates a huge year for Skye, releasing two singles and appearing on Midnight Oil’s Makarrata Project track ‘Terror Australia’. She went on to tour with the Oils in support of the album earlier this year.

Listen to ‘Party Tricks’ and check out tour dates below. I Feel Better But I Don’t Feel Good  is out Friday, 23rd July via Bad Apples.
