The Linda Lindas announce debut album ‘Growing Up,’ release title track
The Linda Lindas have announced a new album, Growing Up, out digitally April 8 and physically June 3 via Epitaph. To celebrate the announcement, they dropped a music video for the title track. The band will also be performing on The Late Late Show with James Corden February 2.
The visual, shot completely on an iPhone, was directed by Humberto Leon. Leon spoke about his experience in a press release. “Directing my first video for The Linda Lindas was a dream come true because I love the message and voice the girls have. I am a true fan. I was really inspired by the girl’s love of cats and wanted to take that to the next level. The video is a conversation about turning points in their lives, all being viewed through the gaze of their cats. It creates a narrative of whether the cats want to trade places with the girls or vice-a-versa.”
“This video was extra special because I worked with the girls on designing the outfits with Batsheva, styling the looks with Rodarte and Warby Parker,” Leon continues. “The entire video was a collaboration between me and the girls. By shooting the video on iPhone 13 Pro Max, it created an intimacy with the video that felt like we were listening in on a day in the life of The Linda Lindas.”

The Linda Lindas will also host a livestreamed mini-concert Feb. 3 from Leon's CHIFA restaurant in Los Angeles. You can tune in at 6 p.m. PST via Warby Parker's Instagram to watch the band perform songs from their new album, as well as previous releases.
