Miya Folick shares “Bad Thing” + Video



August 26, 2022—Much-lauded vocalist, songwriter and producer Miya Folick shares a new track today, “Bad Thing,” co-written by Folick, Mitski and Andrew Wells and co-produced by Gabe Wax and Wells—listen here and watch the Ruby Caster-directed video here.

The new song is taken from her forthcoming EP, 2007, slated for release September 9 via Nettwerk—pre-order/pre-save it here.

2007 is a document of an adult in progress that chronicles Folick’s struggle to grow up and reckon with what it means to leave her youth behind. In making the follow up to her debut LP, Folick eschewed some of the lyrical and musical obfuscations she layered onto Premonitions to produce her clearest and most confident work yet. Anchored by her singular voice, the songs on 2007 are emotionally straightforward, straddling a line between pop and something more experimental. Though she may not have it all figured out yet, 2007 is an honest snapshot of where she is now and what it took to get there. 

The new track follows initial offerings “Nothing To See,”


and “Oh God,” her first new music in three years, and recent shows with Sir ChloeYears & YearsLucy DacusBand of HorsesIan Sweet and more. Folick is also teaching a five-session songwriting workshop this month through School of Song, an online music school that has featured workshops by several acclaimed musicians including Robin Pecknold (Fleet Foxes), Meg Duffy (Hand Habits), Luke Temple (Here We Go Magic) and more, and has recently appeared twice at Los Angeles’ Largo, performing with both Meg Stalter and Friends and Fred Armisen and Friends.

Additionally, Folick will hit the road in the U.S. this fall, with headlining stops in Brooklyn, Los Angeles, San Francisco and an extensive tour across the UK/EU with Tove Lo in October and November—see full routing below and get tickets here

Raised in Santa Ana, CA and now living in Los Angeles, Folick first attracted acclaim with two EPs, 2015’s Strange Darling and 2017’s Give It To Me EP. Folick’s 2018 Terrible Records/Interscope debut album Premonitions drew critical praise from NPR, GQ, Pitchfork, The FADER and many more; landed her a Tiny Desk Concert for NPR and saw her sell out headline shows and play festivals the world over.

“Both lyrically and vocally, Folick is a trapeze artist, plunging into uncertain, dark depths only to spring to the other side of the divide.”—Pitchfork “[Miya] may take your breath away.”—NPR


“Miya Folick can predict the future and it’s as sunny as her pop songs”—i-D Magazine


“…the kind of pipes that just don’t seem teachable.”—Paste

“The day I wrote this song, I woke up with a first-class, absolutely soul crushing hangover, after having slept for a couple fretful hours,” Folick says. “I wasn't the kind of person who could hide a hangover, so I told Mitski and Andrew what was going on. We wrote this song. It’s about being stuck in a cycle of behavior that you can't get out of, but it's not bleak. There's hope in the song. I always knew that I would get out of that cycle eventually.”
