Abbie Ozard announces debut album ‘everything still worries me’

Manchester indie pop star Abbie Ozard has announced her debut album ‘everything still worries me’ is set for release this summer and shared new single ‘anything for you’.

After years of hard work, 2024 is a year for celebration of friendships, family and relationships, all the while presenting an underlying sense of uncertainty. The album is a juxtaposition between embracing small joys, and the way they can quickly turn sour – your drink spills, your ice cream melts, your socks have holes in them – and reflects the unease of navigating life in your twenties.

New single ‘anything for you’ – written alongside Ben Matravers – falls in line with this approach, from the gritty opening bass line and semi-whispered verse vocals to the earworm chorus.

On the themes, Abbie elaborates: “In the past I’ve found myself changing everything about myself to suit another person. This track embodies the desperation and yearning you experience during an unrequited situationship, how you can’t think for yourself and how blindsided you are when it comes to love that isn’t reciprocated but still ongoing.”

Abbie Ozard began teasing the debut LP last year with her singles ‘days like these’ and ‘i don’t know happiness without you’ – and with the announcement today, she crystallises an opening chapter born of dedication to infectious indie song-craft.

everything still worries me – the debut album from Abbie Ozard – is out July 25th via House Anxiety (Courtney Barnett, Hazel English, Royel Otis).
