Anna Shoemaker Joins Forces With Middle Part For “It’s Depression”

Indie-pop singer and songwriter Anna Shoemaker shared her new single, “It’s Depression (ft. Middle Part),” out now on +1 Records.

Defying Anxiety on “It’s Depression”

“It’s Depression” arrives on the heels of “Sick!,” the first single to be released from Anna’s forthcoming debut album. With these new songs, Anna is breaking out of the bedroom pop world into a more mature and intentional sound; writing her feelings as though you’ve lived them alongside her. 

“It’s Depression” is a collaboration between Anna and Brooklyn-based musician Middle Part; who has been credited on many of Anna’s previous tracks and often performs in her live band. “Middle Part and I similarly overthink a lot of things and, to me, that’s kind of what this is about,” she says. “It’s an anxiety attack in a song.” It’s a bold and anthemic song, swelling with infectious guitar riffs, heavy-hitting percussion, and an irrepressible chorus. “Tell me that you want me back and I’ll stop overthinking everything I do and all I say to you. It’s not really what I had in mind! All I want is someone to love and I don’t know why I always f*ck everything that I do and all I say to you. It’s not really what I had in mind!” 

Next Year Looks Bright For Anna

Described by NYLON as “Brooklyn’s own Olivia Rodrigo,” Anna Shoemaker is making her mark as the next indie-pop artist to watch. Combining alt-leaning production, intoxicating pop melodies, and notably honest lyricism; her songs capture the turmoil, charm, and introspection of young adulthood.

Originally hailing from Philadelphia, she first made her mark by releasing a viral mashup of Kendrick Lamar’s “B*tch Don’t Kill My Vibe” and Chance the Rapper’s “Cocoa Butter Kisses” right from her bedroom floor. She has released 2 EPs since – East Side in 2018) and Everything Is Embarrassing just last year. As well, she has a handful of standout singles. Anna is now preparing to release her debut album in early 2022 via +1 Records.
