Sophie Allison has announced her sophomore album as Soccer Mommy is entitled color theory will be released via Loma Vista Recordings on February 28th.

We previously heard other albums tracks “yellow is the color of her eyes” and “lucy” and today the album announcement also features the release of third single “circle the drain.”

The album confronts the ongoing mental health and familial trials that have plagued Allison since pre-pubescence, color theory explores three central themes: blue, representing sadness and depression; yellow, symbolizing physical and emotional illness; and, finally, gray, representing darkness, emptiness, and loss.

The record was written mostly while on tour and recorded in her hometown of Nashville, produced by Gabe Wax, who also produced Clean. This is the first album that features the live Soccer Mommy band on the studio recording, with “a live take at the foundation of almost every track.”
