Stephanie Poetri returns with single “Picture Myself”

Off of the back of her debut EP “AM:PM”, which has since crossed 20M streams globally, Stephanie Poetri returns with single “Picture Myself” a collaboration with producer M-Phazes (Madonna, Demi Lovato, Kehlani) and writer Sarah Aarons (Zedd, Flume, Jessie Ware). Nostalgia and longing are woven into every word of “Picture Myself,” as Stephanie contends with the tumult of emotions associated with being in a long distance relationship.

“You moved out the West and I moved to the city / Made separate beds but I still hold you in my chest when things aren’t looking pretty,” Stephanie sings over soft strummed acoustic guitar and warm synth melodies. The song captures the vulnerability and uncertainty that comes with being away from the one you love, but also a sense of understanding through its intimate lyrics.

The music video, directed by Eileen Yoon, follows Stephanie on a day around New York City, doing the things she used to do with her partner but now alone. Sometimes you just want to have someone to share that jumbo slice with.

According to Stephanie, “’Picture Myself’ is an acoustic rendition of what long distance feels like and the constant wondering of whether it’s worth it or not. As someone who’s experienced a long distance relationship, it feels like this song really captures the cycle of worrying and missing and confusion.” The cover art for the single was drawn by Stephanie herself and adds an additional personal touch to the project.
