It has been suggested that Peaches is currently working on her first studio album since 2015’s Rub.
In 2021, she released her first single of the pandemic era in ‘Pussy Mask’. In a recent interview, she explained the song: “I was working on the new album when I came up with a line like ‘My pussy squirts so hard, I have to wear two masks’ or something and I thought: that needs to be a song right now because I’m going to shine a light on a lot of concerns but also have a good laugh. I wanted to enjoy myself, make people happy and offer a snapshot of what’s happening now.”
