Guatemalan-born, Mexico City-based songwriter Mabe Fratti has announced her new album Sentir Que No Sabes — the follow-up to 2022's Se Ve Desde Aquí — arriving June 28 on Unheard Of Hope

Alongside the album announcement, Fratti has also shared two new singles; "Kravitz" is a lurching, sideways groove that explores the darker send of Fratti's sonic spectrum, while "Pantalla azul" is a prettier, gentler affair. "It's a song about the sensation of not knowing where the opinions come from and the chicken or egg question," Fratti said in a statement about the former. "Do they come from outside? Do they come from inside? Also, who wants to listen to these opinions? Who actually listens to them?" 

Of "Pantalla azul" — which translates to "Blue screen error" — Fratti said:

This one was born out of me getting a Whammy and playing around with it. I came up with the riff and a melody that was inspired by "autotuned" effects. Héctor [Tosta – her partner, multi-instrumentalist, and co-composer] pushed the track forward by creating the quantic jump towards the polyrhythmic section that transforms the song. The lyrics make a reference to the "stop" blue on the screen on VHS or the blue screen of a PC when it breaks. Also to an appreciation to what's unknown and mysterious, and being at peace with the shadow and the complexity of things.
