Olivia Rodrigo has made an official announcement about her highly anticipated second album! Taking to social media on Monday, June 26th, the renowned artist revealed exciting details about her upcoming project titled GUTS. In a post showcasing what appears to be the album’s cover art, she wrote, “Mark your calendars for September 8th when my sophomore album GUTS will be released. I’m incredibly proud of this record and I’m bursting with excitement to share it with all of you! You can already pre-save it now! Hugs and kisses ❤️💜💌🖤.” This revelation comes just a few days prior to Rodrigo’s scheduled release of the album’s first single, “Vampire.” Earlier this month, the singer had been teasing her fans with a countdown to June 30th, which is when the song will finally drop.

Fans have been anxiously awaiting Olivia Rodrigo’s musical comeback ever since her Grammy-winning debut album SOUR took the world by storm in 2021. Now, as we near the end of this week, the wait will finally be over with the highly anticipated release of “Vampire,” marking the former High School Musical: The Musical: The Series star’s triumphant return to the music scene after two long years.

Rodrigo has been teasing her devoted followers, building excitement for the new music. On the two-year anniversary of her Grammy-winning debut, she took to social media last month, assuring fans that the new material is nearing completion with an emphatic “pinkie promise.” To further stoke anticipation, she even shared a tantalizing 2-second snippet of a new song. In April, Rodrigo ignited hope when she posted a photo alongside pop sensation Charli XCX, fueling speculation of a potential collaboration on her forthcoming album. At the beginning of this year, Rodrigo made sure to keep her fans in the loop, sharing on her Instagram Story that she was hard at work crafting her musical masterpieces.
