SZA set to debut new material from long-awaited second album

It follows droplet singles Hit Different, Good Days and Doja Cat duet Kiss Me More.

SZA is set to debut new material from her long-awaited second album during a livestream performance. 

In partnership with Grey Goose, the US R&B star will take to the stage for the "one-of-a-kind virtual musical experience" IN BLOOM on July 1.

Working as the brand's new creative consultant, SZA will also use the moment to perform some new songs from her sophomore record for the first time.

"I feel like IN BLOOM really captures where I’m at right now, especially after a year and a half of lockdown," SZA said in a statement.

"Which is also why it feels like the best place to debut some of my new material. I’m so excited for my fans to see this performance.”

SZA has been teasing the follow-up to her critically acclaimed debut LP CTRL for the last year, releasing a droplet of singles including Hit Different with Ty Dolla Sign and Good Days, which peaked at Number 13 on the Official Singles Chart. 

But it was her song of the summer contender Kiss Me More with Doja Cat that really heralded SZA's return this year. The lead single from Doja's third record Planet Her, Kiss Me More has so far peaked at Number 3 on the Official Singles Chart, becoming SZA's second UK Top 10 single and her highest-peaking hit yet.

You can tune into SZA and Grey Goose's IN BLOOM livestream here on July 1, 2am UK time.
