Poppy has unveiled details of a huge world tour in support of upcoming new album, ‘Flex’.

Poppy’s new album will arrive on September 24 via Sumerian. ‘Flux’ will mark “yet another artistic leap for the ever-evolving musician, featuring a stream-lined songwriting approach that puts her indelible earworm melodies at the foreground of a kaleidoscopic mosaic of overdriven guitars,” according to a press release.
The album has been produced by Justin Meldal-Johnsen (M83, Air, St. Vincent), who had Poppy and her band record live to tape in order to achieve an organic feel.
To accompany the announcement, Poppy shared a music video for the album’s title track, which she directed herself. The clip features a pastel dream world constructed by Australian visual/sculpture artist Pip & Pop.
Poppy released her latest album, ‘I Disagree’, in January 2020. In a four-star review of the record, NME wrote: “‘I Disagree’ is [Poppy’s] most accomplished record, full of daring theatre and snarling forward motion. While all our favourite rock bands are going pop, Poppy is unapologetically embracing her desire to go heavy.
“It might be inspired by the bands she grew up listening to, but there’s not a moment on ‘I Disagree’ that feels like a throwback. Try and keep up with her.”
