Alice Merton has announced her sophomore album.

The record is called S.I.D.E.S., and will arrive June 17. It features the previously released songs “Vertigo,” “Island” and “Hero.” A fourth cut, titled “Same Team,” is out today via digital outlets.

“The last two years have been challenging for everyone in some way or another,” Merton says. “Friends and family were lost, restrictions were enforced for the first time since I’ve been alive, and mental strength had been tested to its limit.”

She continues, “S.I.D.E.S. tells my story of how I experienced these past years. It’s a summary of the ups and many downs, the psychological challenges I faced, and somehow realizing that there will always be another side to the story — the question is just how and when do you get there.”

S.I.D.E.S. follows Merton’s 2019 debut album Mint, which includes her breakout single, “No Roots.”

Here’s the S.I.D.E.S. track list:

“Loveback”
“Island”
“Future”
“Same Team”
“Blurry”
“Everything”
“Blindside”
“Shiny Things”
“100 Stories”
“Hero”
“Mania”
“Vertigo”
“Breathe in, Breathe Out”
“Letting You Know”
“The Other Side”
