Tate McRae has hinted that she’s finished her highly anticipated debut studio album, and previewed a new single.
The rising Canadian musician released the EP ‘Too Young To Be Sad’ last year, and has so far previewed her debut album with the 2021 single ‘Feel Like Shit’ and the recent ‘She’s All I Wanna Be’, co-written by Greg Kurstin.
McRae took to Twitter this week to seemingly confirm that the album is now completely finished.
“I just handed in the official track list for my album oh my,” she wrote, before going on to preview an unreleased song called ‘Chaotic’, which fans can pre-save now.

Speaking to NME about her debut album last year, McRae said “I like to try to analyse structures of different albums and see what kind mine might be similar to,” naming the labyrinthine structure on Frank Ocean‘s ‘Blonde’ as a reference point, as well as Billie Eilish‘s debut ‘When We All Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go’ and ‘After Hours’ by The Weeknd.
“The cool thing about ‘Blonde’,” she said, “is that I don’t think I’ve heard one song that sounds anything the same to him and, you know, the cool part is it kind of just makes you want to push yourself.”
“I just want to work as hard as I can to live up to my own expectations and everyone else’s,” she told NME. “I guess it’s a bit of pressure but if you put your head down and work at it, you can kind of ignore those outside feelings of anxiety and stress. It’s just about indulging in your work and making sure that you’re doing the best that you can at all times.”
