Sadie Dupuis Announces New Poetry Book Cry Perfume

Sadie Dupuis, of both Sad13 and Speedy Ortiz, has a new collection of poetry on the way. It’s titled Cry Perfume and it arrives on October 4 via Black Ocean. Her second book of poetry, following 2018’s Mouthguard, is comprised of poems she wrote on the road across four years of touring.

“I’d lost friends to overdose, and felt anger at the ways in which live music largely ignores the needs of musicians and music fans who use drugs or who face addiction—and how in many ways, artists are encouraged toward untenable living,” Dupuis said in a statement. “The chronic underpayment of musicians, the inseparability of venues and alcohol sales, and the arts’ increasing absorption into algorithmically-motivated tech felt like interwoven concerns.”

Dupuis issued her second album as Sad13, Haunted Painting, in September of 2020. She’s contributed to a handful of collaborative projects, joining Ada Rook as a guest on Backxwash’s track “Songs of Sinners.” She covered Cloud Nothings’ “Psychic Trauma” for Carpark Records’ 21st anniversary compilation before sharing “Shit for Christmas” on a holiday-themed benefit collection.
