Phoebe Bridgers, Lucy Dacus and Julien Baker’s album arrives on March 31st.
The upcoming release of The Record , the first full-length studio album from Phoebe Bridgers, Lucy Dacus, and Julien Baker’s supergroup Boygenius, promises to be a milestone for indie kids and queer women everywhere. And the critically acclaimed musicians have an extra treat for their fans in the form of three upcoming music videos directed by another queer icon, Kristen Stewart.
The news was announced on January 26 Rolling Stone cover profile Bridgers, Dacus and Baker in support of the upcoming album, which is scheduled for release on March 31st via Interscope Records. No other information has been released about the videos, including when they will drop or which songs on the record will feature them. Bridgers, Dacus and Baker released three singles for the album – “$20”, “Emily I’m Sorry” and “True Blue” – earlier this month to announce the album.
This isn’t the first music video the “Happiest Season” and “Spencer” star has directed. Previously, Stewart produced the video for Sage + the Saint’s 2014 single “Take Me Down to the South” and in 2017 he produced the video for Scottish indie pop group Chvrches’ “Down Side of Me”. Stewart also directed the short films “Come Swim” and “Crickets” for Refinery 29 and the Netflix anthology series “Homemade.”
Stewart’s directorial ambitions don’t stop with his Boygenius collaborations; Last November, it was announced that the actor would make his feature directorial debut with “The Chronology of Water,” based on Lidia Yuknavitch’s memoir. Stewart and Andy Mingo co-wrote the screenplay for the film, which stars Imogen Poots and is produced by Ridley Scott. The focus of the memoir is Yuknavits’ struggle with addiction problems, the disclosure of his bisexuality, and his participation in the Boycott Divestment and Sanctions movement against the Israeli oppression of Palestine.
At the 2022 Cannes Film Festival, Stewart spoke to IndieWire about his passion for the upcoming film, which he has been attached to since 2018 while promoting his role in David Cronenberg’s Future Crimes.
“If I don’t make this movie before the end of the year, I’m going to die,” Stewart said at the time.
