Boygenius Surprise-Release Debut EP: Listen Now

Boygenius, the indie-rock supergroup of Lucy Dacus, Phoebe Bridgers and Julien Baker, have surprise-released their debut self-titled EP today, Oct. 26, on all digital streaming platforms, two weeks ahead of the official physical release. This comes just one day after the trio announced they would be performing on Late Night with Seth Meyers on Monday, Nov. 5, where they’ll perform boygenius standout “Me & My Dog.”

The project was first announced back in August, followed a month later by a crop of three singles from the EP. The band came together when the three performers booked a tour together, which will be starting in November. “It seemed obvious to record a 7-inch for tour, although many adult men will try to take credit for the idea,” Bridgers said in a statement. “When we got together, we had way more songs than we expected and worked so well together, that we decided to make a full EP.”

Baker added, “Everyone seemed both confident enough to present ideas and fight for their individual vision, but considerate and humble enough to make decisions which ultimately served the song. It was a process that required a balance of determination and forthrightness with graciousness and pliability, and I think that we all did a good job of enacting that.”
