Selena Coppock’s debut stand-up album, Seen Better Days, comes out on December 5th from Little Lamb Recordings, and we’ve got an exclusive preview for you right here.
Coppock, a co-star on Amazon’s Red Oaks with credits including VH1 and The New York Times, recorded the album at The Duplex in New York City, a jazzy, intimate venue where one time I talked myself out of a drink minimum. She’s also graced stages at The Slipper Room, Union Hall, Caroline’s, the Upright Citizens Brigade (both Chelsea and East), Gotham Comedy Club and elsewhere. She’s written for McSweeney’s, Reductress and The Loom, and she’s the host of Bitchcraft, a variety show in NYC. Oh, and she runs that funny Twitter parody account NYTimes Vows, which I frequently forget is not the Times account itself. It’s really weird that there’s still a whole section of the newspaper of record devoted to cataloguing the engagements of the upper class, right??
In this exclusive preview track, “DJ Stats,” Coppock hypothesizes that all DJs secretly want to be statisticians. Then she does what we in the industry refer to as an “act-out,” embodying the titular character. Okay, that’s enough joke summary for you. I’ve listened to a handful of other bits on the album—which includes stories about the wild world of social media, stalking one’s exes and Coppock’s ambition to open a gym for newly single people—and I can confidently report that if you enjoy “DJ Stats,” then you’d best hop on this pre-sale link. The album comes out December 5th on iTunes, Amazon Digital Music and Google Play.
