Full Poppy Stagger EP Lyrics and Tracklist
Three out of four tracks off the EP, “Stagger,” “FYB,” and “Pocket,” were all debuted with a live performance before its official release on October 14, 2022. Poppy told NME about the then yet-to-be released EP, “Well the EP is consisting of four songs and I just feel like they are a mini-chapter in my life”. After leaving Sumerian Records earlier in the year, Poppy signed to Republic Records / Lava Records, marking this her debut EP release with them.
Featured on the cover of Kerrang!, Poppy revealed that after moving back to Los Angeles, she texted guitarist and keyboardist Ted Gowans, “We have to write a song,” in late 2021. They later went to Nashville to work with producer Mike Elizondo. She also explained the EP’s writing process,
It was the dissolve of a very traumatic relationship. It was a very quick dissolve. Music, for me, has always been like an exhale. I feel sometimes when I get too cloudy in the head, I have to write things down and it helps me make sense of the things that I deal with on a personal level.
