Soccer Mommy (the project of Nashville native Sophie Allison) has shared a seven-minute long brand new song "Yellow is the Color of Her Eyes," via a video for the track directed by Alex Ross Perry (Her Smell). She has also announced some new 2020 tour dates. "Yellow Is the Color of Her Eyes" features Mary Lattimore on harp and follows "Lucy," another new song Soccer Mommy shared in September that was one of our Songs of the Week. There's no word yet of a new album or EP. Check out the "Yellow Is the Color of Her Eyes" video below, followed by the tour dates.

Allison had this to say about the song in a press release: "'Yellow is the Color of Her Eyes' is a song that is really important to me. The song was inspired by a time when I was on the road constantly and I felt like I was losing time - specifically with my mother. It's also a song that I feel really showcases my writing when it comes to instrumentation, so it's one that makes me really proud."

Perry had this to say about making the video (which the press release describes as a short film): "The challenge of creating a 7-minute piece was daunting and irresistible in equal measure. Having just completed a film for which the color-coded design of it's various acts was of the utmost importance, Sophie's idea of collaborating on a short-form film to complement her similarly-conceived new music was irresistible. 

"Running with her idea of locations evoking where she wrote this song, the concept couldn't have announced itself more boldly. To that, I shared images from Breaking the Waves and Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind. It wasn't until we got the footage back that I realized a dash of first-scene-of-Inception had snuck in there, as well."

Allison released her debut full-length album, Clean, back in March 2018 via Fat Possum. It was one of our Top 100 Albums of 2018. Back in January she shared a demo version of the album's "Blossom," as well as the B-side "Be Seeing You."
