Life Support is the debut studio album by American singer-songwriter Madison Beer, released by Epic Records on February 26, 2021.
Life Support has been seen as a dark, honest and sad album by those who review it. It features a diversity of sounds, from R&B to alternative and pop. The album seems to add further to claims that Beer has taken seemingly heavy inspiration of artists, as many reviewers attribute the album to a mix of Tame Impala, Lana Del Rey and Twenty One Pilots. Lyrically, the album deals with mental health, self reflection, grief, and breaking yourself free of restraints. “Good in Goodbye” is a catchy break-up anthem with a dark melody that according to Beer is about “cutting ties with a toxic person, no matter how tough it can feel at the time, is sometimes the only way forward.” “Selfish” is a slow tempo pop “breakup ballad” that has a “stripped down” production that emphasizes Beer’s vocals. Lyrically the song is about toxic relationships. “Stained Glass” is a downbeat ballad about public scrutiny and Beer’s struggles with mental health. The song’s production begins with just piano before adding drums on the song’s chorus and Beer’s vocal performance was described as “haunting and beautiful”. Sour Times was inspired by Tame Impala.
