There is no set release date for the album yet but Boucher has previously stated that it would be released this month. In a recent interview with Q, Boucher shared some more information about the album mentioning Bruce Springsteen, Billy Joel and The Godfather among points of reference. “One song on the album, ‘Kill V Maim’, is written from the perspective of Al Pacino in The Godfather Pt 2, she said. “Except he’s a vampire who can switch gender and travel through space.”
