Alex Lahey has released a new single, Sucker For Punishment.

The earworm pop-rock track is the first new music to emerge from the Australian singer-songwrtier since the release of her second album, 'The Best of Luck Club', in May 2019. Lahey said:

“We're living in an era we're the micro has become the macro. I don't think there has ever been a time where our actions and attitudes as individuals have had such an impact on broader humanity and the planet. Whether it's a ‘think about it later’ attitude towards climate change, the undemocratic consequences of sharing personal data to big business online, a lethargicness in the face of political engagement or the need to be validated as a worthwhile individual through obtaining arbitrary units of engagement on social media -  we need to catch ourselves out before we suffer greater consequences.”

Lahey will return to the UK and Europe in March for a tour with the Regrettes. She'll also support City and Colour during his Australian tour this spring, and will headline her own shows in the US this summer.

We spoke with Lahey prior to the release of her latest album. Head here to read the interview. We also caught her live during her tour supporting the record and got her to sit for our Wet Plate Portrait series. Check that out here.
