GUTS (spilled), the deluxe edition of Olivia Rodrigo’s chart-topping sophomore album, is available today. Five additional songs appear on the deluxe, including her new single “obsessed,” which has been performed nightly on the GUTS World Tour. GUTS (spilled) is available digitally and for pre-order as a collectible vinyl with a limited-edition splatter colour variant.

Rodrigo wrote “obsessed” with Daniel Nigro, who produced GUTS as well as her debut album SOUR, and Annie Clark (who records as St. Vincent). The song originally appeared as a hidden track on the red D2C exclusive vinyl, standard black and additional retail variants of GUTS vinyl. The deluxe album also includes “girl I’ve always been,” “scared of my guitar,” and “stranger” – hidden tracks from other color vinyl variants of GUTS. A brand-new song “so american,” recorded following the release of GUTS, appears on the deluxe as well.

Produced by Cadence Films, the video for “obsessed” was directed by Mitch Ryan (Rosalía “Despechá, “Hentai”).

Rodrigo is currently on a massive sold-out 75-date arena tour across North America, Europe, and the UK with stops in Miami, Toronto, New York, London, Manchester, Glasgow and more. The GUTS World Tour is taking her to renowned venues worldwide such as Madison Square Garden, Kia Forum, Sportpaleis, and The O2.

Hailed as an “instant classic” by Rolling Stone, a “masterpiece” by the Los Angeles Times and “bitingly charismatic” by Pitchfork, GUTS topped the album charts in over 13 countries including the U.S., where it debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200, coinciding with lead single “vampire” returning to the top spot on the Billboard Hot 100 and Rodrigo’s No. 1 ranking on the Artist 100, thereby giving her a chart triple. GUTS’ 11 other tracks all appeared in the top 40 of the Hot 100, making Rodrigo the first artist to chart all songs from two career-opening albums in the Hot 100’s top 40. When critics reflected on the best albums of 2023, GUTS appeared on more than 30 lists, including The New York Times, Rolling Stone, NPR, Pitchfork and Billboard.
