Ahead of her highly-anticipated appearances next week at SXSW, which includes stops at Showtime’s Twin Peaks-themed showcase, the Aussie-lead Laneway Festival showcase, a coveted spot on the bill at NME’s official showcase—Portland native Alexandra Savior is treating fans to a slew of new this week! Unveiled today, both the official album artwork, which she painted herself for her upcoming debut album, as well as a new song, “Vanishing Point.” The hypnotic new track is lifted from Savior’s new record, Belladonna Of Sadness, which is due out April 7th 2017 via Columbia Records. You can PRE-ORDER the album starting today, right HERE.
After what was, very much a breakthrough year for the young singer in 2016, Alexandra Savior will surely be the name on everybody’s lips this year, especially following her hotly tipped SXSW appearances, not to mention stops at popular summer festivals Boston Calling (tickets) and PrimaveraSound in Spain (tickets). Alexandra is also excited to return to Europe this Spring, with performances lined up in Paris, Berlin and 2 dates in London. After her first London date sold out in one day, a second one has been announced for May 30th 2017 at Scala. Tickets on sale March 17th, 2017.

Alexandra Savior made her mark last summer, following the release of debut single “Shades,” which left Noisey “completely hooked” on the 21-year old singer/songwriter. Now, with a string of releases under her belt, including “M.T.M.E.” (watch the self-directed video HERE), “Mystery Girl” and “Mirage” Savior’s forthcoming album, ‘Belladonna Of Sadness’ (due April 7th, via Columbia Records) is gearing up to be one of the most anticipated debut releases of the year. Watch the nostalgia-drenched Irrum-directed video for “Mirage,” HERE.
An artist in every sense of the word, not only does Ms. Savior write music and perform live; she also paints her own artwork and writes, directs and edits her own music videos. “Belladonna of Sadness” was co-written by Alexandra and British rock frontman Alex Turner (Arctic Monkeys/Last Shadow Puppets) and co-produced by James Ford (Haim/Florence and the Machine) and Alex Turner.
Alexandra’s unique sound and style first caught the attention of several creative forces including T. Bone Burnett who placed her song, “Risk,” in the most recent season of HBO’s cult series, “True Detective.” In addition to that track, Alexandra also co-wrote the most recent Last Shadow Puppets’ single, “Miracle Aligner” along with the erstwhile Arctic Monkey, Alex Turner.
