During an interview with NME last year, Ferreira revealed that her highly anticipated second album ‘Masochism’ was nearly done. “It’s basically done for the most part, it’s just that some parts need to be re-recorded,” she said. “Just the finishing touches, really.”
The record was initially scheduled for release in 2015, but it has been pushed back multiple times since. In October 2021, the singer said a release date for the album had been confirmed, teasing its arrival for March 2022.
Later, she asserted that ‘Masochism’ was “actually coming out” in 2022, and back in January of that year, Ferreira’s mother re-confirmed that a March release was on the cards.
When the album didn’t materialise in March, Ferreira told fans to hold off on their “wrath and death threats” until the following month.
‘Masochism’, which will follow 2013’s ‘Night Time, My Time’, is still yet to receive a formal release date.
Ferreira returned in May 2022 with ‘Don’t Forget’, her first song since 2019’s ‘Downhill Lullaby’.
Last month fans reportedly bought a billboard in Times Square to display a photo of Ferreira with the message “Free Sky Ferreira”, claiming that her music had been “held hostage” by her label Capitol Records “for almost a decade”.
Recently, a plane carrying a banner with the same plea was spotted flying over the label’s HQ in Los Angeles, California.
