"Immature Couture" is a single by Poppy. It was released on September 28th, 2018.

Background

After announcing the rescheduling of the North American leg of the Am I a Girl? Tour, Poppy released "Immature Couture" as a surprise single on SoundCloud to thank her fans for their patience.

Theme

"Immature Couture" is a song dedicated to those who are insecure and diffident. Poppy tells the listener that she prefers people who are outcasts and encourages them to be self-confident, saying that one must be unique to stand out or else they will be less remembered as an individual.

Lyrics

[Verse 1]
Who-a-you has a purpose?
Who-a-you's standing up?
Are you wasting your time trying to synchronize
With a world that's out of touch?
Gimme something to worship
Idolize and respect
Well, I know it's tempting to give up and blend in
But you'll be easier to forget

[Pre-Chorus]
So put on your sequins and all your leopard prints
Whatever you want, bitch, just wear it with confidence
They're not ready for you, but next year they'll be emulating you

[Chorus]
Immature couture
(Immature couture)
You wear it well but you're still insecure
(Immature couture)
If your parents think you're gay, then you're doing it right
Put that makeup on your face like it's saving your life
'Cause you were made to be great so you don't need to hide
Come alive, come alive, come alive

[Post-Chorus]
I like your immature (Immature couture)
Couture (Immature couture)
It's so pure (Immature couture)
So make the sidewalk your catwalk and work it with pride, oh yeah

[Verse 2]
We wanna see some progress
We wanna change it up
'Cause you can't be sublime when you're falling in line
You gotta stand tall and look tough
I've always loved the outcast
With fashion that's so advanced
I can't even believe what you're doing to me
It's a long-distance romance

[Pre-Chorus]
So put on your sequins and all your leopard prints
Whatever you want, bitch, just wear it with confidence
They're not ready for you, but next year they'll be emulating you

[Chorus]
Immature couture
(Immature couture)
You wear it well but you're still insecure
(Immature couture)
If your parents think you're gay, then you're doing it right
Put that makeup on your face like it's saving your life
'Cause you were made to be great so you don't need to hide
Come alive, come alive, come alive

[Post-Chorus]
I like your immature (Immature couture)
Couture (Immature couture)
It's so pure (Immature couture)
So make the sidewalk your catwalk and work it with pride, oh yeah
I like your immature (Immature couture)
Couture (Immature couture)
It's so pure (Immature couture)
So make the sidewalk your catwalk and work it with pride, oh yeah
I like your immature (Immature couture)
Couture (Immature couture)
It's so pure (Immature couture)
So make the sidewalk your catwalk and work it with pride, oh yeah

  • This song was likely intended for Am I a Girl?, but was later scrapped.
    • Despite the song not being on the album, the single artwork is the album cover of Am I a Girl?.
  • The male background vocals were sung by Chris Greatti.
  • This is the first Poppy single to be released without an announced release date, the second being "Hard Feelings", the third being "All the Things She Said" and the fourth being "I Won't Be Home for Christmas".
