On Wednesday (November 10), Sophia announced her debut album Anxious Avoidant, out this spring.

Along with the announcement, she revealed the lead single and music video for “2AM (And I Did It Again,” which she co-wrote with Tim Buron

2AM and I did it again / Broke my hand trying to say it with a pen / Putting up a fight no one heard at night / Sleeping in,” she sings on the track.

“It’s a paralyzing feeling – being unable to speak your truth. When words are not spoken out loud, when questions are too scary to ask and feelings are withheld, there is no escaping – the storm is only delayed,” Sophia says of the song.

“’2AM (And I Did It Again)’ is an anthem for anyone who has ever written a letter with no destination address or a text too terrifying to send. It’s that feeling that wraps around you like a boa constrictor and prevents you from being your true self. It’s that ticking time bomb about to implode, explode and catch on fire all at once. What better vehicle for channelling this combustible energy than sounds reflecting the angsty earworms of the 90’s and 00’s sadboys that stole our hearts shedding their sorrows on stage in bands such as Fall Out Boy and Green Day?”
