Ahead of her performance at The Meadows this weekend—the first performance she's given in NYC in quite a while—Sky Ferreira is finally promising new music (though not necessarily a full album). Night Time My Time's follow up has been hotly anticipated and slated for release multiple times, each falling through and giving way to further delays. Today, Ferreira took to Instagram to announce she'll be releasing new music very soon:

Since her 2013 studio album debut, Ferreira has done several collaborations, featuring on a single with Scottish rockers Primal Scream, or more recently, a song and video for the Edgar Wright film Baby DriverShe's also spent more time in the acting world—following her brief stint in The Green Inferno, she had larger roles in 2016's Elvis & Nixon, the aforementioned Baby Driver, and even a spot on David Lynch's Twin Peaks reboot. She also self-directed a cover shoot for Playboy last October, and more recently, did the same for Purple Magazine's special 25th anniversary edition which she also covered.

But music is Ferreira's first love, and she's never too far from that world. So what can we expect from the upcoming songs and album? Previously, Ferreira cited the theatrical Swedish performer Fever Ray and her eponymous album as a heavy influence for the secondary album. Songs like "I'm Not Done" or "Keep The Streets Empty For Me" by Ray recall some of the darker tones on Night Time, My Time, most notably the titular track itself.

So perhaps Ferreira's follow up will explore more of these darker themes; traditional pop has never been her aim. But regardless of the tone, she's sure to give a preview this weekend at The Meadows.
