Indigo De Souza announces new album "All Of This Will End" via Saddle Creek, and shares new single & video "Younger & Dumber".
Indigo De Souza announces her new album All of This Will End, the anticipated follow-up to her acclaimed 2021 breakthrough album Any Shape You Take, out April 28th via Saddle Creek. The announcement comes with a video for its lead single “Younger & Dumber,” directed and conceptualized by Indigo and featuring clothing designed and constructed by Indigo and her mom, Kimberly Oberhammer, who also created the album’s artwork, and a mask designed by Henry Shearon.
All of This Will End marks a warmer and unmistakably audacious era for her. It’s a statement about fearlessly moving forward from the past into a gratitude-filled present, feeling it all every step of the way, and choosing to embody loving awareness. Across 11 songs, the album is a raw and radically optimistic work that grapples with mortality, the rejuvenation that community brings, and the importance of centering yourself now. These tracks come from the most resonant moments of her life: childhood memories, collecting herself in parking lots, the ecstatic trips spent wandering the Appalachian mountains and southern swamps with friends, and the times she had to stand up for herself.
“All of This Will End feels more true to me than anything ever has,”
she says. Additionally, Indigo has announced a 2023 tour that includes a headline run, a stop at Austin, TX’s SXSW Music Festival and dates supporting Sylvan Esso. Tickets go on-sale on Friday Feb 10th local time. All dates below. Indigo De Souza on “Younger & Dumber”:
"‘Younger and Dumber’ is a flood beam of my emotional and spiritual human experience. My growing up defeated by a world brutally littered with trash, violence and grief, and somehow finding beauty, purpose, and boundless love existing in the same place.
This song felt really emotionally intense for me when I wrote it. I was sitting in my house and it kind of flowed right to me as if it had already been written by some other force. A lot of the lyrics are a nod to the idea that your experiences make you who you are. I endured some heavy darkness and dysfunction when I was a teenager.
But if I hadn't been through those things, I wouldn't be who I am now. When you're young, you don't know any better, but you learn from your experiences, and then you become somebody who’s been alive and learning.
It’s also about how heartbreaking that is; to start as a child with vivid curiosity, innocent imagination and joy, and for the world to end up being kind of brutal to be a part of.
This song is a love letter to everyone’s inner child. No one can prepare us for how insane it is to be alive. How many times we will have to rise from the ashes and what courage it will take.”
Indigo De Souza on the “Younger & Dumber” video:
“I took psilocybin for the shoot. I have a very specific way of dancing when I’m on mushrooms. The movements feel like electricity rising up from the earth through ancient networks of mycelium.
It feels like the trees and plants are moving my body for me and I am just surrendering. It feels so clear to me now more than ever, how important it is to unabashedly embody my truest spirit.
Because I am not special, and I’m fleeting, and it feels like it's my purpose to help mobilize others to come home to themselves. To wake from our societal sleepwalk and consider the importance in creating deep connection within community and relationships.
To find a preciousness in the time we have and the earth we’re nourished by. To see nature in all its primordial magic, as something to learn from and grow with. Something to protect.”
