dodie today announces her eagerly anticipated debut album Build A Problem, due for release on March 5, 2021. A first taste of the record is available from today in the form of lead single “Cool Girl”, premiered as The Hottest Record In The World by Annie Mac on her BBC Radio 1 show. “Cool Girl” is available to stream and download now; Build A Problem is available to pre-order from today in CD, vinyl, deluxe CD, deluxe vinyl and cassette formats.
” ‘Cool Girl’ is a song about misplaced anger,” says dodie. “Stemming from the suppression of communicating your needs in a relationship in order to attempt to be the most chill, cool, and loveable. It’s bitter, desperate, frustrated, proud, determined, and unhealthy.”
At just 25, dodie has already done a lot of living. Some of that has played out online as she made a name for herself as a singer and writer, amassing millions of fans with her disarmingly honest videos and affecting, intimate singing style. She has scored two top-ten EPs, headlined and sold out London’s Roundhouse, and the Hollywood Palladium and New York’s Terminal 5, and become an ambassador for depersonalization charity unreal. It’s hard to believe she has yet to release her debut album.
