Watch the video for “Lucky 88,” the lead single from Twerp Verse
Speedy Ortiz have announced a new album: Twerp Verse is out April 27 via Carpark. They’ve also shared a new music video for the lead single “Lucky 88.” The clip is produced and directed by Emily Yoshida. Watch below. In a press release, Sadie Dupuis explains that the band scrapped a collection of “strictly personal or lovey dovey” material in the wake of the 2016 election. “Social politics and protest have been a part of our music from day one, and I didn’t want to stop doing that on this album,” Dupuis says.
werp Verse follows Speedy Ortiz’s 2015 record Foil Deer. In 2016, they released the Foiled Again EP. That year, Sadie Dupuis released a solo album called Slugger.
