Lorely Rodriguez aka Empress Of releases her new EP Save Me. The 5-track EP was written over the course of 2021 and showcases Lorely in transition from her third album I’m Your Empress Of, released in 2020, onward to a self-released project with her strongest voice yet. Lorely pulls inspiration from Cocteau Twins, Björk and Robyn in the same breath, continuing to display her ability to cross various genres and styles with ease.
Save Me includes the collaborative track “Turn The Table” with Jim-E Stack (Charli XCX, Bon Iver, Haim) a song with ethereal vocals that builds into a momentous pop anthem. The EP also includes previously released singles “Dance For You,” which arrived accompanied with visuals directed by Alexis Gómez and the title track “Save Me,” which also dropped with a video directed by Gómez shot on location in Mexico City and was created in collaboration with the sexual wellness company Dame. Save Me follows her2020 full-length album I’m Your Empress Of, which Pitchfork stated is “as addictive as modern love” and features the stand-out track “Give Me Another Chance.” The EP’s release also follows Empress Of’s assistance on the tracks “Note To Self” by Jim-E Stack, “Love In Reverse” by MNDR and “Vacío” by Jarina De Marco, all released last year.
Empress Of will be performing at Outside Lands in August before she hits the road supporting Carly Rae Jepsen on her North American tour this fall. The 23-date run begins on September 24th in Montreal and will see Empress Of playing iconic venues like Radio City Music Hall in New York City, The Eastern in Atlanta and The Greek Theatre in Los Angeles before wrapping up at the Aragon Ballroom in Chicago on November 5th. Empress Of is also set to perform in Mexico City at Corona Capital this November. Tickets available HERE.
