Everything We Know About SZA's New Album

S.O.S. will arrive before the end of 2022.

Originally Published: 

It’s been a long time coming for SZA’s sophomore album, but after years of promises, teasing, and delays, the singer is finally gearing up to release her new album, S.O.S.

Having been five long years since her debut record CTRL, it’s a wild understatement to say that the project is highly-anticipated. Still, despite how sky-high fans’ expectations for the album are, the music — the little the singer has shared so far — is already squarely meeting them, if not exceeding them. Recent single “Shirt” and the newly teased “PSA” are already indicating another fruitful release is in the cards for the “Good Days” singer.

As she’s wont to do, SZA has been notoriously cagey about the specifics around the upcoming album, though some info has been released as we move closer to the end of 2022 and the presumed arrival of the album. Below, see everything we know so far about S.O.S., including its release date, features, and tracklist, ahead.

What is SZA’s new album called?

SZA’s new album is called S.O.S. The singer confirmed its name in an interview with Billboard, officially cementing what fans had already suspected to be the album’s title.

The singer previously hinted at the phrase in her music video for “Shirt,” in which SZA tattoos the letters on her wrist. Additionally, in the teaser for an unreleased track titled “PSA,” the video ended with a morse code message that spelled out “SOS.” She later also included the same morse code in her Instagram bio.

When will SZA’s new album be released?

SZA’s S.O.S. will arrive Dec. 9, 2022 via TDE Records. She revealed the release date during her Dec. 3 performance on SNL.

What songs will be included on SZA’s new album?

SZA’s S.O.S. will include a whopping 23 tracks, per the album’s official tracklist. Previously released or teased singles “Shirt,” “Good Days,” “I Hate U,” and “Blind,” are included on the album, while “Hit Different,” and “Joni” are noticibly absent.

In a Billboard cover story, the album is described as “daring,” and includes a “grunge record,” an “acoustic guitar-driven ballad,” and a lo-fi-sounding track with “surf rock” elements throughout.
