Anderson supports "Bad Posture"
Friday, October 22, 2021
– Abby Anderson is out with a new single, "Bad Posture," today, the first song off an album coming in 2022 via STEM.
The song was a few years in the making. With the release of her debut EP, "I'm Good," in 2018, Abby Anderson should have been happier than ever.
But Anderson sensed there was something wrong. "I found this photo of me, and don't get me wrong, I was smiling and the right weight for my frame, dressed the way people thought a girl like me should dress," Anderson said. "But it wasn't me. I felt like I was looking at someone else. I asked, 'why don't I recognize this person?'"
"So, I made some changes," she said. "I gave myself permission to be happy, to eat what I wanted and make the music I wanted without trying to fit into some preconceived notion of what a woman should be. Somewhere along the way, I started standing up taller and actually smiling, not just the controlled grin that portrayed a happy version of my best in photos. And when the outside started to reflect what I was feeling inside, it also came out through the music I was writing."
Written alongside Anna Vaus and produced by Marshall Altman, "Bad Posture" lyrics include:
People keep telling me I look different
Most days I feel like I grew a few inches
I catch myself questioning me
There's still parts of you that I still try to please
Phantom pains of your opinion
Burden on my shoulders
All of your words that you put on me like a weight
Yeah I used to have bad posture
But since you've been gone
I stand up straight
Earlier this month, Anderson wed her fiancé Tyler Graham at Saddle Woods Farm in Murfreesboro, Tenn.
