Since the mega success of Lauv’s 2018 single, “I Like Me Better,” fans have been itching for a full album, and now it finally has a release date. The crooner announced on Thursday (Oct. 3) that ~how i’m feeling~ will be available March 6, 2020.
“I’ve been working on this album for a long time, but today marks the true beginning of the new era. ~how i’m feeling~ is about embracing personality and all its different aspects,” he said of the record in a statement. “I created six different characters represented by purple (existential Lauv), blue (hopeless romantic Lauv), green (goofy Lauv), yellow (positive Lauv), orange (fuckboy Lauv) and red (spicy Lauv™️), all of which make up my identity. While my last project was focused on one aspect of my life, ~how i’m feeling~is the first time I’m embracing all the parts that make me who I am.”
The album’s cover art features the six characters mentioned hanging on the artist as he sits cross-legged, looking into the camera. The 21 tracks include previously released singles “Feelings,” “Sad Forever,” “Drugs & The Internet,” “fuck, i’m lonely” featuring Anne-Marie and “i’m so tired…” featuring Troye Sivan.
In celebration of the announcement, Lauv dropped another single, “Sims.” Listen below, and pre-order ~how i’m feeling~ here.
