November 14, 2023 BY Bailey Vigliaturo
Alt-pop sensation Abby Sage is set to captivate the world with her latest single, “Hunger.” Produced by MyRiot (Halsey, London Grammar, AURORA), the alluring release serves as the second offering from the Toronto-born, Los Angeles-based artist’s forthcoming debut album, due out in Spring 2024 via Nettwerk.
In this compelling track, Abby Sage delves into the profound and sensitive topic of sexuality, delivering a message of self-discovery and liberation. “Hunger” represents Sage’s fearless submission to her true desires and an unwavering commitment to her own identity. The chorus’s deeply personal lyrics, “Feed my hunger, No shame, I’m just a beginner,” perfectly encapsulate the spirit of the song – an unapologetic declaration of personal empowerment and the courage to embrace one’s authentic self.
When asked about the single, Sage shared, “‘Hunger’ is the most important song to me on the album. It addresses the pressure and expectation that I have felt all my life surrounding sex and what my relationship with it should look like. Give enough but not too much. Want it enough but not too much. It’s my surrender to myself and what I want/crave, finding that in myself, and moving forward. I wish I heard a song like this when I was first exploring my sexuality and my sexual journey, and for that reason I hope it reaches people.”
Accompanying the release of “Hunger” is a spellbinding music video that beautifully illustrates Abby’s journey of breaking free from the shackles of shame as she explores her sensuality and sexuality. The video is dark but poetic, an artistic masterpiece that serves as a powerful visual narrative, reflecting the song’s themes and Sage’s creative vision.
The latest single comes as a follow-up to Abby Sage’s nostalgic and dreamy track, “Milk,” which offered a first taste of her upcoming debut album. On the heels of releasing the song, Sage graced the stage at the Austin City Limits music festival and then brought her captivating live performance to select dates on indie-pop singer-songwriter Gus Dapperton’s US tour.
