Anna Meredith is back with her second studio album, FIBS. Due out on October 25th via Black Prince Fury, the 11-track LP will follow up her 2016 debut, Varmints, and her celebrated score for Bo Burnham’s Eighth Grade. The famed composer has also previewed her forthcoming collection with lead single and video, “Paramour”.
The record gains its name from “fibs”, which Meredith describes as “lies — but nice friendly lies, little stories and constructions and daydreams and narratives that you make for yourself or you tell yourself.” Sonically, the album builds off of Varmints, overhauling her sound with the addition of new acoustic and electronic instruments and an overhauled writing process.
You can preview FIBS with the LP’s lead single “Paramour”. Watch the mesmerizing video, which was shot in one-take, below.
