Masochism is Sky Ferreira's second studio album, set to be released in 2017/2018. Ferreira teased that she would be playing new songs during the fourth quarter of 2014. This was announced on her Instagram account. "added 3rd SF show (!!!) & LA is still available in November. No Oxygen bars...sadly.....but we will be playing new songs?!?!?!? Also @virgilabloh & I are planning a BIG light show ✨✨✨✨✨✨"
Ferreira described the album as "…a little heavier. It's not going to be an electronic album completely -- it's going to be a blend of everything."
Prior to the album's release, Ferreira and her manager, Troy Carter, decided to part ways.
- "Troy's a great manager, but I think we both had different stuff in mind for me. He's a powerhouse, and I really need someone who can travel with me and be there for the whole thing. He's so great at what he does, so there was no falling out or anything like that. It just wasn't really making sense for either of us, I think. … It was just needing someone to be there full-time. But there's no bad blood whatsoever."
On April 6, 2015, Ferreira confirmed the album title via Twitter in response to a question sent in by a fan. The question sent read: "Is @SkyFerreira’s new album named… #MASOCHISM? muumuse.com/2015/04/sky-ferreira-new-album-named-masochism.html/ … pic.twitter.com/d0uKpkxLZf", of which Ferreira responded "@MuuMuse that is what the 2nd album is called ❤️❤️❤️"
