NEWS: Miya Folick shares single ‘Bad Thing’, co-written w/ Mitski from new EP ‘2007’, and UK/EU Tour with Tove Lo

Miya Folick has shared her new track ‘Bad Thing’, co-written by Folick, Mitski and Andrew Wells and co-produced by Gabe Wax and Wells. The song captures with a sensitivity that feeling of waking up guilt-ridden and hungover after the night before. It is also examines negative patterns and breaking free of them. Tremulous synth pop landscapes are riven with Folick’s sensitively drawn narrative. What makes her an outstanding songwriter and vocalist is her ability to not just capture feelings but also inhabit them in a hook-laden song full of uncharted depths. Watch the Ruby Caster-directed video below.

The new song is taken from her forthcoming EP, 2007, slated for release 9th September 2022 via the label Nettwerk. You can pre-order/pre-save it here.

2007 is a document of an adult in progress that chronicles Miya Folick’s struggle to grow up and reckon with what it means to leave her youth behind. In making the follow up to her debut LP, Premonitions, Folick eschewed some of the lyrical and musical obfuscations she layered onto that record to produce her clearest and most confident work yet. Anchored by her singular voice, the songs on 2007 are emotionally straightforward, straddling a line between pop and something more experimental. Though she may not have it all figured out yet, 2007 is an honest snapshot of where she is now and what it took to get there.

The new track follows initial offerings ‘Nothing To See,’ ‘Ordinary‘ and ‘Oh God,’ her first new music in three years, and recent shows with Sir ChloeYears & YearsLucy DacusBand of HorsesIan Sweet and more. Folick is also teaching a five-session songwriting workshop this month through School of Song, an online music school that has featured workshops by several acclaimed musicians including Robin Pecknold (Fleet Foxes), Meg Duffy (Hand Habits), Luke Temple (Here We Go Magic) and more, and has recently appeared twice at Los Angeles’ Largo, performing with both Meg Stalter and Friends and Fred Armisen and Friends.

Raised in Santa Ana, CA and now living in Los Angeles, Folick first attracted acclaim with two EPs, 2015’s Strange Darling and 2017’s Give It To Me. Folick’s 2018 Terrible Records/Interscope debut album Premonitions drew critical praise.

Folick will hit the road in the UK and mainland Europe later this year with Tove Lo in October and November—see full routing below and get tickets here.
