Christopher Owens Releases Surprise Album Chrissybaby Forever

Former Girls frontman and songwriter Christopher Owens released the song “Selfish Feelings,” via a tweet last week, saying the track was off a “forthcoming album.” Yesterday he surprise-released that album, titled Chrissybaby Forever. The 16-track solo album, recorded in San Francisco at Decibel Studio, was co-produced, engineered, and mixed by JJ Wiesler.

[jump] It's not the first time Owens has surprised the music world. His departure from Girls in 2012 was a shock to many, including Pitchfork.

Owens had a unique upbringing, raised as a member of Children of God, a traveling religious community (aka cult). The group's reluctance to seek professional medical attention led to the pneumonia-related death of Owen's infant brother, Steven.

You can stream the new album below. “Heroine (Got Nothing On You)” is the stand out track.
