Soccer Mommy - twenty-one year old Nashville native Sophie Allison – released her debut album Clean earlier this year to critical acclaim, and today she announces a new 7-inch single. The single’s A-Side is a newly reworked version of Henry, a song that originally appeared on Soccer Mommy’s 2016 collection For Young Hearts on Orchid Tapes. The B-Side is a cover of Bruce Springsteen’s I’m On Fire, a live show highlight that now has a long-awaited studio recording.
I wanted to make a version of I'm On Fire that connected with the sadness of the song. I think that doing a more stripped down version allowed me to make something that feels emotionally raw Soccer Mommy and her band have been touring non-stop this past year, supporting the likes of Paramore, Liz Phair, Phoebe Bridgers, Stephen Malkmus and the Jicks, and Speedy Ortiz, in addition to selling out headline shows across the U.S., Europe and U.K. Her tour continues internationally next month, before returning stateside for a headline run later this year and a support tour with Kacey Musgraves early 2019.
Clean, out now on Fat Possum, has already received mid-year Best of 2018 nods from the likes of TIME, NPR, Rolling Stone, Entertainment Weekly, Billboard, Stereogum, The AV Club, Hypebeast, Paste, The Ringer, Uproxx, Vinyl Me, Please and more. Upon its release, the album also landed at #1 on the NACC College Radio Chart for 4 weeks straight, #1 on Spinitron chart, #7 on Billboard’s Heatseekers chart, #13 on Billboard’s Vinyl chart, and #79 on Billboard’s Top Album chart.
