Olivia Rodrigo will take ‘sour’ songs on a journey in a new concert film
Olivia Rodrigo will take it Acid songs on the road, literally, in an upcoming concert film that will debut on Disney+ in March.
Driving Home 2 U (A Sour Movie) will feature Rodrigo taking a road trip from Salt Lake City (where she began writing her acclaimed debut album) to Los Angeles. Along the way, Rodrigo and his band will stop at venues such as the Mojave Airplane Boneyard, Roy’s Motel & Café, Arcosanti, and Red Rock Canyon State Park to play 11 Acid Songs.
Rodrigo will also share the stories behind the Acid songs throughout the trip, with guests like Jacob Collier, Blu DeTiger and Towa Bird making appearances during the road trip.
Driving Home 2 U (A Sour Movie), directed by Stacey Lee and produced by Interscope Films and Supper Club, debuts exclusively on the streaming service on March 25, a week before the 2022 Grammys where Rodrigo is up for seven awards, including the Big Three (Song of the Year, Record of the Year, Album of the Year) and Best New Artist. Along with the mini-road trip, Rodrigo also announced plans for his first-ever world tour.
In rolling stoneIn the Musicians on Musicians issue, Rodrigo spoke about the instant success of his debut album with Alanis Morissette.
“Releasing music in the age of social media can be really daunting, and I think people hold young women to an incredibly unrealistic level. I followed the same path as you and don’t look at it,” Rodrigo said. “I don’t think anyone is supposed to watch this stuff. I don’t think we as humans are supposed to know what thousands of people think about what we wear, what we say, or how we talk. I think having that separation is really important – realizing that this isn’t real life, you know what I mean? This world that is created online is only one facet of this very great human existence.
