LIZZY MCALPINE DEBUTS NEW SONG “ERASE ME” FEATURING JACOB COLLIER ALONGSIDE VIDEO
MAKES LATE NIGHT DEBUT ON “JIMMY KIMMEL LIVE!” NOVEMBER 22
“erase me,” the new song from rising artist Lizzy McAlpine featuring Grammy-Award winning musician Jacob Collier, debuts today on Harbour Artists & Music/AWAL, alongside an accompanying video. Directed by Gus Black, the video marks the latest visual entry in order to create a cinematic identity for her music. The new release sets the stage for more music to come soon.
“After a breakup it feels easiest to seek comfort in the beds of strangers but that almost never makes you feel better,” says McAlpine. “It makes you feel lonelier because there’s ‘nothing there but skin.’ This song explores that feeling, along with the idea that the person you love could replace you too, and there’s nothing you can do about it.”
McAlpine furthers, “The video for ‘erase me’ really encapsulates the meaning behind the song because it shows the aftermath of a breakup. You fill the space that person left with strangers in an attempt to forget. At the end of the video, we see that it didn’t work because I end up back at the school from my previously released ‘doomsday’ video. You can try all you want to forget them but as soon as you’re reminded, you’re heartbroken again.”
Additionally, McAlpine will make her late night television debut on ABC’s “Jimmy Kimmel Live!” November 22 where she’ll perform the new track.
McAlpine recently unveiled her first solo release of the year, “doomsday,” to critical praise; Teen Vogue proclaims, “The Philadelphia-based songstress charges on the dark, mid-tempo track,” while Notion called the song “stirring.”
McAlpine is also set for an extensive run of North American tour dates with Dodie. The shows kick off in early 2022 and include performances at New York’s Kings Theatre, Nashville’s Ryman Auditorium, Chicago’s Riviera Theater and Philadelphia’s The Fillmore as well as multiple shows at Los Angeles’ The Theatre at Ace Hotel. Full tour routing can be found below.
McAlpine is from outside Philadelphia and has been drawn to music since she was big enough to thump on her grandparents’ piano. Soon her freeform experiments took on greater structure when she began to share original songs and covers on Soundcloud and YouTube.
With 90 million streams to date on DSPs, McAlpine’s gained notable supporters on social media including Shawn Mendez, Finneas, Phoebe Bridgers, Camila Cabello, Lennon Stella, Ben Platt, Jeremy Zucker and more.
In 2020, McAlpine released her debut album, Give Me A Minute, chronicling the beginning and end of a romantic relationship. The album was written while she was studying abroad in Spain and produced by fellow Berklee College of Music classmate Philip Etherington. Following its release, American Songwriter featured McAlpine on their “Acts You Need To Know” list.
