Olivia Rodrigo’s Second Album is in the Works

Olivia Rodrigo has given her second album a title and disclosed that she has reconnected with her ‘Sour’ co-writer/producer to develop new tracks. The singer-songwriter stated in a new interview that “[I] really enjoy the music we’ve been making”, and that despite the success of her 2021 debut album she still writes most of her music in her bedroom.

“I have a title for my next album and a few songs,” she told Billboard. “It’s really exciting to think about the next world that’s coming up for me. I just love writing songs. I’m trying not to put too much pressure on myself…just sort of explore and have fun right now.”

When asked if she is back working with Dan Nigro, her primary artistic collaborator on ‘Sour’, she said: “I absolutely love working with Dan. We have such a good groove together. We are always sharing ideas back-and-forth and have been carving out time to work together in the studio. The craziness of ‘Sour’ being out in the world was something that really only Dan and I could relate to, and I think that has brought us closer together. I trust him so much and really enjoy the music we’ve been making.”

Reflecting on the critical and commercial success of ‘Sour,’ she added: “It’s definitely a different experience writing a second album after having a debut that was so well received.”

“I still write so much of my music in my bedroom though, and I don’t think that experience will ever change. Writing songs will hopefully always be an outlet for me to process my feelings before anything else.”

In the meantime, Rodrigo has released a new documentary on the making of her debut album, ‘Sour.’
