After emerging in 2017 and appearing on a handful of high-profile collaborations, Sasha Alex Sloan had garnered over 2 billion streams worldwide before even releasing a debut album. Sasha has established herself as a true wordsmith, crafting emotionally rich, left-of-centre releases filled with potent melodies and poignant lyrics. Praised by The New York Times, Billboard, SPIN, Rolling Stone, PAPER,UPROXX, and more, Sasha gained attention through the release of hit singles including “Lie,” “Normal,” “Older,” and “Dancing With Your Ghost,” leading to sold-out headlining tours in North America and Europe.
I Blame The World was written by Sasha and her partner King Henry, the eleven-track project serves as a follow-up to her 2020 critically praised debut, Only Child. Crafted over the past two years and aptly released on Friday the 13th, I Blame The World is a culmination of the all-too-relatable feelings of angst and apathy mixed with Sasha’s signature razor-sharp wit and confessional song writing style. Self-aware and poignant in its direction–which can be felt in tongue-in-cheek songs like “Live Laugh Love,” “Global Warming,” and the album’s lead single “WTF”–I Blame The World ushers in a bold new era of musicality from Sasha.
“This album was written while I was in a dark place. I started looking more outward than inward and that’s where the theme of the album stems from, “says Sasha of the project. “I wanted to express how I was feeling lyrically, while sonically creating a landscape that felt fun.”
