Sydney Sprague's new single, 'quitter', is a "classic break-up song" inspired by "scream-singing along to Phoebe Bridgers", after debating whether or not to give an ex a second chance.
The latest song from the rising alt-pop star is taken from her upcoming album, 'maybe i will see you at the end of the world, which is set for release via Rude Records on February 26.
Sprague said of the track: “I started writing it on my way home from band
practice one night, which happened to be on the same street as my ex-boyfriend’s house. “We had just broken up and I didn’t know if I made the right call. Part of me
was hoping I would run into him (figuratively, not with my car). Everything in my life was
changing, and my instinct was to run back to safety, but I couldn’t forget all of the reasons I
left. This song is about having that internal debate, scream-singing along to Phoebe Bridgers out your car window, feeling the hot wind on your face, and letting go of the
wheel … metaphorically, of course.”
