The update to her second album comes after Rodrigo last teased in January that she was in the studio working on the follow-up to “Sour.” Rodrigo shared a brief black-and-white video to her Instagram Stories on Jan. 9 in which she can be seen playing lead over piano chords played by her producer, Dan Nigro. “I’m working on so many new songs that I’m excited to show you guys,” Rodrigo wrote alongside the video. “Thank you for everything.”

Olivia Rodrigo’s “Sour” earned a glowing four-star review from NME. Critic Rhian Daly wrote, “When your first release is such an ubiquitous track as ‘driver’s license’ it must be hard to make a full album to match. For the most part, Rodrigo exceeded the bar she set for herself on this single, sharing with us a masterpiece that is almost confident, cool, and exhilaratingly realistic at the same time. He’s not a flash-in-the-pan artist, but an artist we’ll live with for years to come.

The album also earned numerous accolades, including three Grammys and six wins at this year’s Billboard Music Awards. It was followed by two Disney+ specials: the concert film “Sour Prom” and the documentary “Driving Home 2 U (A Sour Film)”.
