‘Sour’ dominated the charts in 2021 so will Olivia Rodrigo be presenting us with a second album soon? Do we have a release date to get excited over yet? Here’s what’s been said so far.
Olivia Rodrigo was quite the hit in 2021 with her hugely successful debut album ‘Sour’, lots of songwriting and of course, her role as the star of High School Musical 3 set to be released later this year.
With all that on her schedule, fans still want more from the ‘Drivers License’ singer as they ask - is Olivia making a new album yet?
Now, just months after her huge album success, followers of Olivia are seeking all the clues as to whether she’s working on a second album.
So is Olivia set to release a new album called ‘Sweet’? Do we have a release date? Here’s everything we know so far:
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.
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”.
The teen artist has yet to confirm she’s working on a second album so any details like a release date are TBC too. Fans are secretly hoping for a surprise drop though.
Fans are guessing the second album will take a much more romantic turn following her ‘Sour’ heartbreak LP.
Olivia said it will “probably be a lot happier than the record I just made.”
