The teen sensation had spilled the beans about her album in an earlier interview with Nylon in February 2021. While talking about her artistic vision for her first album, she said, “I want it to be super versatile. My dream is to have it be an intersection between mainstream pop, folk music, and alternative rock. I love the songwriting and the lyricism and the melodies of folk music. I love the tonality of alt-rock. Obviously, I’m obsessed with pop and pop artists. So I’m going to try and take all of my sort of influences and make something that I like.” She added, “I actually feel a lot more confident in my writing abilities since ‘Drivers License’ came out.”
Olivia Rodrigo’s ‘Sour’ will be stacked with 11 tracks. As mentioned earlier, songs namely ‘Drivers License’ and ‘Déjà Vu have already been released. Speaking about her songs, she had earlier said, as reported by website Genius, “I’m so happy with the album, which I was not expecting. I was expecting me to listen to it and be like, “Uhhh,” like everything that I did wrong. I truly feel like it’s the best that I can do right now. I wrote one song when I was sixteen, and one song when I was eighteen, but most of them I wrote when I was seventeen. It’s very much like a slice of my life in that moment.” Speaking of songs, here’s how the tracklist of ‘Sour’ looks like:
‘1 Step Forward, 3 Steps Back’
‘Good 4 U’
‘Enough for You’
‘Hope Ur Ok’
