Is Olivia Rodrigo working on a second album?

Olivia is working on her second album! In fact, she's already decided on a title and has a few songs written after working on new tracks in her bedroom, just like she did for 'Sour'.

“I have a title for my next album and a few songs,” she confirmed to 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.”

The 18-year-old also revealed she's working with songwriter Dan Nigro again, saying: "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."

When her next album is set to be released though remains undecided.

Will Olivia Rodrigo’s second album be called ‘Sweet’?

With her debut album named ‘Sour’, fans are convinced the sister album will be called ‘Sweet’.

In a recent interview on Jimmy Kimmel she said: “Salty? Savoury? Umami? I don't know. It's my little secret. I'm still kind of working on the rest of it."

Other clues pointing to ‘Sweet’ as a name include fans noticing many of her love songs not making the first album. With Sour dedicated to heartbreak, they’ve assumed ‘Sweet’ will be a love song collection.

Olivia also teamed up with Sour Patch Kids for a collaboration where the slogan was “Sour then Sweet”.
