Olivia Rodrigo Reveals Upcoming Release of “Guts,” Her Sophomore Album, Set for September

Pop sensation Olivia Rodrigo has recently disclosed exciting news regarding her highly anticipated second album, titled “Guts,” slated for release on September 8 under Geffen Records.

This announcement comes hot on the heels of the revelation of the album’s lead single, “Vampire,” which is scheduled to drop on June 30. Accompanied by the album’s producer, Daniel Nigro, who also worked with Rodrigo on her debut album “Sour,” this fresh musical endeavor holds significant promise.

Reflecting on her creative process, Rodrigo shared that “Guts” revolves around the theme of personal growth and the search for identity during a pivotal period in her life. She expressed, “To me, this album encapsulates the challenges and self-discovery experienced during the transition from adolescence to young adulthood. The ages of 18 to 20 were transformative, marked by a whirlwind of emotions and change. I believe that these experiences are part of a natural growth process, and I hope that the album genuinely captures that essence.”

Fans of Rodrigo have eagerly awaited her return since the release of “Sour” in May 2021. The album proved to be a monumental success, earning the former Disney star three Grammy Awards and achieving quadruple-platinum status. In fact, “Sour” made history as the longest-running debut album of the 21st century on the Billboard 200 chart. Rodrigo’s decision to collaborate once again with Daniel Nigro for “Guts” ensures a captivating continuation of their successful partnership.

Renowned for her raw and heartfelt songwriting, Rodrigo gained acclaim with her debut single, “Drivers License,” which she released at the young age of 17. Her candidness and ability to convey genuine emotions resonated deeply with audiences worldwide. In an interview with Variety in August 2021, Rodrigo explained her motivation behind such honest expression, stating, “With ‘Sour,’ I delved into my deepest secrets and insecurities. It’s a bit peculiar to expose oneself in that way and offer it up for anyone to listen to. But witnessing the empowering impact it has had on others and their ability to relate to my vulnerability has been truly remarkable.”

Olivia Rodrigo’s recent announcement, accompanied by an album art teaser, has generated tremendous excitement among her dedicated fan base. As the release of “Guts” draws nearer, anticipation continues to grow for what promises to be another compelling chapter in the musical journey of this talented young artist.
