Self Esteem announces new album 'Prioritise Pleasure'

After returning earlier this year to release her brilliant comeback single 'I Do This All The Time', Rebecca Lucy Taylor aka Self Esteem has now announced her plans for a new studio album, arriving later this year.

The new full-length 'Prioritise Pleasure' follows on from her stunning 2019 debut LP 'Compliments Please', is being previewed by the newly unveiled title-track, and is set to be released on the 22nd October via Fiction Records.

Speaking about the new song and video, she said, “The song is a wide screen mantra, remembering to put myself first and in turn making myself a better, more present person. My journey to accept myself is far from over, but over the last few years some of the age old simple shit has started to finally kick in. Love yourself, be in the moment, put your needs first - that all used to feel so abstract and impossible but with a bit of will power (and writing a tonne of songs about it), I finally not only see the benefits but am actively enjoying them.

"The video is of course a homage to Madonna’s blonde ambition tour and also a testament to how hard work pays off. Me and the girls in the band did lots of zoom rehearsals and us nailing this choreo was a really triumphant moment for us, and choreographer Stuart Rogers who never doubts we’ll get there.”

While adding about the album, it is “13 songs of cleansing myself of the guilt and fear of being a woman who is ‘too much’ and replacing that very notion with a celebration of myself, of you, of being a human and the way that isn’t always easy or perfect, and that’s ok. Sorry to my parents for the lyric ‘shave my pussy, that’s just for me’ but i think it’s maybe my finest hour!”
