SOFI TUKKER share a new single “Original Sin” and announce their forthcoming sophomore album WET TENNIS along with a world tour. WET TENNIS is the highly anticipated follow-up to their 2018 GRAMMY nominated debut album Treehouse, due April 29th via Ultra/Sony Music.
“Original Sin” is a mantra of being kind to yourself and rejecting imposed social mores. It’s a duet that parachutes you into the center of SOFI TUKKER’s world with a juggernaut rhythm and an instantly memorable hook.
The group says, “‘Original Sin’ is the perfect way to introduce the world of WET TENNIS and it’s very emblematic of ” the freak fam”, our community. It says: we aren’t meant to be saints. We aren’t born sinners. We’re just a bunch of freaks who make mistakes and keep trying to do our best. WET TENNIS is an acronym that stands for: “when everyone tries to evolve, nothing negative is safe” and that’s what this song is all about. We live in a troubled world, it’s not our fault if we have trouble sometimes. That’s part of what makes us human. But when we evolve together and celebrate instead of judge each other, we can move through negativity into a more optimistic way of life. “
The “Original Sin” video is steeped in playful eroticism and introduces the joyful and seductive iconography of WET TENNIS. In true SOFI TUKKER fashion, they decamped to a tropical location radiating lush greens and sunlight and realized the video in Oahu, Hawaii with director Aerin Moreno and creative direction by Amber Park (Camila Cabello, Madison Beer). They wear custom WET TENNIS outfits designed by Johnny Wujek (Katy Perry, HBO’s Legendary) in the video’s very metaphorical and ecstatic tennis match.
