Phoebe Bridgers has released new single ‘I See You’. It’s the latest track to be taken from her second album, ‘Punisher’, which is out next month.

The song was originally titled ‘ICU’, but – what with everything going on at the moment – Bridgers decided it was probably for the best that she changed it. Lyrically she’s fine, as the song isn’t actually about intensive care units.

“It’s about my breakup with my drummer”, she says. “We dated for a few years, made music every day, and were extremely co-dependent. We became like family to each other, so our breakup was extremely tough. But if this tells you anything about our relationship, we wrote this song together, just like everything else”.

She’s also announced plans for a world tour, starting later this month. Sure, yes, she had been due to support The 1975 around the US this summer. But now that’s all been cancelled, she’s free to go truly global.

By this, of course, she means performing as part of various different virtual festivals around the world. She will be changing venues though, moving around different rooms in her house for each show.

Here are the dates:

26 May: Kitchen (as part of Hooligan Magazine’s #HooliganHangouts)
28 May: Bathroom (as part of Noisey’s Noisey Night In)
4 Jun: Bedroom (as part of DIY Mag’s DIYsolation)
6 Jun: Bedroom (details TBA)

Anyway, that’s all happening, and then ‘Punisher’ will be out on 19 Jun through Dead Oceans. Watch the lyric video for ‘I See You’ here:
