“My Soft Machine” is the second studio album by British singer-songwriter Arlo Parks, launched under Transgressive Records on 26 May 2023. Preceding the album were the singles “Weightless,” “Impurities,” “Blades,” and “Pegasus,” a collaboration with Phoebe Bridgers. A tour supporting the album unfolded throughout 2023.

Parks, in describing the album, termed it a “deeply personal body of work” delving into “navigating life in her 20s.” The thematic landscape spans mid-20s anxiety, substance abuse in her social circles, the intensity of first love, grappling with P.T.S.D., grief, self-sabotage, and joy. Notably more collaborative than her debut, Parks engaged with diverse talents globally, drawing influence from bands like My Bloody Valentine and Fontaines D.C., especially noting the impact of the latter’s 2022 album “Skinty Fia.”

Initiated before the release of “Collapsed in Sunbeams” (2021), the album’s creation spanned 18 months, interspersed among Parks’ tour commitments. Collaborators included Paul Epworth, Ariel Rechtshaid, Buddy Ross, and Romil Hemnani of Brockhampton. The title derives from a line in the 2019 drama film “The Souvenir.”

The album’s release unfolded progressively, with “Weightless” announced on 18 January 2023, followed by the European tour revelation. Subsequent singles, “Impurities,” “Blades,” “Pegasus,” and “Devotion,” along with their accompanying music videos, paved the way for the North American leg of the “My Soft Machine Tour,” beginning 29 February 2024.
