WILLOW has released two additional tracks from <COPINGMECHANISM> beginning with the single, ‘<maybe> it’s my fault‘, and followed by ‘hover like a GODDESS,‘ along with a visualizer directed by Jaxon Whittington and edited by Dana Trippe. “WILLOW’s gearing up to release her next album,” said Stereogum, “and it’s taking her in the direction of harder rock. She’s no stranger to heavy music, but that darkness is allowing WILLOW to explore other sides of herself as well.”
WILLOW has been road-testing the songs from <COPINGMECHANISM> over the past months while on a major North American tour with Machine Gun Kelly. She’s also just back from stops across UK & Europe in Reading, Leeds, Munich and Dublin, and released a live performance of ‘hover like a GODDESS’ from Lollapalooza Chicago.
WILLOW’s 2021 album, lately I feel EVERYTHING, showcased her pop-punk sound and featured heavy hitters such as Travis Barker, Avril Lavigne and more. Since its release, l.i.f.E has amassed 400 million global streams. WILLOW was nominated for ‘Best New Alternative Artist’ at the 2022 iHeartRadio Music Awards, and was named Billboard’s Greatest Pop Stars of 2021: Comeback Artist of the Year. The album featured the platinum-certified single, ‘t r a n s p a r e n t s o u l feat. Travis Barker’, which was a Top 5 record at Alternative radio in the US and has netted over 300 million global streams to date. “Easily the best and most assured music of her career so far,” said The New Yorker. “The album is the first to maximise her talents, externalising the pent-up, dialled-up angst of her adolescence.”
