Olivia Rodrigo fans who’ve memorized all the lines from “Drivers License,” “Good 4 U,” and every other track on her chart-topping debut Sour got a chance to experience the hits in a new way with the recent premiere of Olivia Rodrigo: Driving Home 2 U (A Sour Film).
Driving Home 2 U, a new film available on Disney+, goes behind the scenes of the Grammy winner’s songwriting and recording process as she worked on her hit debut, which topped Rolling Stone‘s 50 Best Albums of 2021.
Over the course of the new Disney+ film, Driving Home 2 U takes us on the road with Rodrigo from Salt Lake City — the city she started creating what would become the triple-platinum Sour — to Los Angeles, and even shows fans what it was like inside the studio with producer Dan Nigro, including all the triumphant and honest action-cam footage along the journey.
“When you put out an album or put out singles, they take on an entirely different meaning. I think that’s the beautiful part about music,” Rodrigo told Rolling Stone‘s Brittany Spanos. “It was really interesting to go back and watch footage of when the songs are kind of beginning to form. I think there’s magic to that creative process, and they’re really fond memories in my life.”
In between clips from the studio, Rodrigo makes pit stops along the way to play new arrangements of the songs off Sour with her band, and there are plenty of interviews, scenes from the road, and even an unreleased demo to satisfy fans until Rodrigo releases her next project.
“I was listening to some of them and heard it and thought, ‘Oh, it’s kind of good!'” Rodrigo previously told Rolling Stone. “With the film, I wanted people to have a new bit of Sour content with it.”
Following the release of Driving Home 2 U, Rodrigo performed on Music’s Biggest Night at the 2022 Grammy Awards in Las Vegas on April 3, where she was up for some of the biggest awards of the year, including Best New Artist, Record and Song of the Year for “Driver’s License,” and Album of the Year.
Rodrigo embarked on the first leg of her Sour tour in 2022, which kicked off April 2 at San Francisco’s Bill Graham Civic Auditorium. You can check out all of the tour dates and buy tickets online at Vivid Seats.
