Bully Announces New Album, “Lucky for You”, & Shares New Single

Nashville-based musician Alicia Bognanno, known by her stage name Bully, is set to release her new album titled Lucky For You on June 2nd, 2023.

Lucky For You is a 10-track album that features a mix of music elements from punk, shoegaze, and Britpop anthems. The album was recorded in 2022 at MMK Studios and Alicia’s House in Nashville, with producer JT Daly (Pvris, K.Flay) and mastered by Joe LaPorta (David Bowie, The Marias) at Sterling Sound.

The album’s lead single, “Days Move Slow,” was written after the passing of Bognanno’s dog Mezzi. She has shared that “as someone who has spent the majority of my life feeling agonizingly misunderstood, there is no greater gift than experiencing true unconditional love and acceptance. I waited my whole life for the bond and irreplaceable companionship I had with Mezzi. She was my best friend and my only constant through some of the most pivotal moments and phases of my life. I was a stranger to the level of love I now know exists because of Mezzi. Love you forever; I’m lucky for you.”

The “Days Move Slow” official video was directed by Alex Ross Perry (Soccer Mommy, Pavement), who shared that the aim was to “visualize the emotional weight and feelings of loss and grief depicted in the lyrics.” The video features Bognanno in stark black and white, a departure from her previous music videos.
