Buzzy Los Angeles singer/songwriter Blondshell (aka Sabrina Teitelbaum) announced her self-titled debut album today. Produced by Yves Rothman, Blondshell is coming April 7 via Partisan Records and features lead single “Joiner” (also out today), plus the already released tracks “Olympus,” “Kiss City,” “Sepsis,” and “Veronica Mars.”

Opening up about “Joiner,” which has a video directed by Alex Thurmond, Teitelbaum says: “I was listening to a lot of Britpop when I wrote this song. A lot of those bands (the Verve, Pulp, Suede, Blur, etc.) channeled dark subject matter, drugs, and all this dirty stuff, but with a fun acoustic guitar under it. I was listening to the Replacements, too. That’s what this song was inspired by sonically. I wanted it to feel like you’re watching HBO, where even though it’s heavy, it’s still a good time.”

Listen to and watch “Joiner” below.
