Berkeley, CA – It’s been approximately 11 months since Lil Peep died from a drug overdose. On Thursday (October 18), his mother Liza Womack announced plans for Peep’s posthumous release, Come Over When You’re Sober Pt. 2.
A video for “Cry Alone” came along with it.

Come Over When You're Sober, Pt. 2 will be released November 9. It's just what we all would have expected from Gus. Thanks to @smokeasac for pouring his heart and soul into it for all of these months. Gus’ art is an essential part of the album packaging–it is a pleasure to see a range of Gus's colorful, witty drawings in the vinyl and other physical versions. I think the vinyl record itself is absolutely beautiful. It is designed and crafted with care. More information will be posted about all of that, so stay tuned. Also, I am excited to say that Gus's Cry Alone video is now officially released. In my excitement to upload it I gave you all a sneak preview last night. Love, Liza PS Go Peep!
Shot in May 2017, the visual features lo-fi footage of Peep strolling around Berkeley, California while singing about doing lines of blow and his desire to burn his high school down.
“Tell the rich kids, look at me now,” he sings.
Director Max Beck said the video came together following Peep’s request for McDonald’s.
“It was around 1AM when I saw Peep on Twitter asking if someone could bring him McDonalds in Berkeley,” Beck shared in a statement on YouTube. “I texted him asking what he was doing in town — I was living in the Bay Area at the time — and he told me he’d just finished his show in SF, but that I should come to his hotel and maybe take some photos if I was down.”
Beck continued, “He said it was perfect timing cause he’d just recorded a bunch of new music and that we’d pick a song when I got there. After listening to a few different songs and discussing ideas we chose ‘Cry Alone.’ ‘It just feels right,’ he said. ‘It’s the only song that fits the energy of the night.’”
Come Over When You’re Sober Pt. 2 is scheduled to arrive on November 9.
