NEW ALBUM: ANNA SHOEMAKER | EVERYTHING IS FINE (I'M ONLY ON FIRE)

Brooklyn-based singer and songwriter Anna Shoemaker‘s highly-anticipated debut album, Everything is Fine (I’m Only on Fire), via +1 Records. In conjunction, she also reveals the official music video for the album’s focus track, “Until I Die.” "Everything is Fine (I’m Only on Fire)" captures the complexities of young adulthood. It’s an exhilarating display of innovative sounds, killer pop hooks and razor-sharp lyricism. Throughout, Anna wades through the emotional territory of growing up, reflecting on love, loss, toxicity, heartbreak and mental health. Ultimately, the album portrays Anna coming into her over the past few years as both a musician and a young woman. Anna elaborates on the album process: “Everything Is Fine (I’m Only on Fire) is made up of bits and pieces of my diary over the past two weird years. It’s about a fascination with self-destruction but also redemption. It’s about forgiving yourself when you have every reason to hate yourself. It’s about falling in love when you have every reason not to trust. This album is a destruction fantasy. It’s about burning down expectations until the only thing left is you.” Described by NYLON as “Brooklyn’s own Olivia Rodrigo,” Anna Shoemaker has quickly emerged as the next indie-pop darling to watch. Her songs capture young adulthood's turmoil and charm by combining alt-leaning production, intoxicating pop melodies, and notably honest lyricism.
