Singer pops up unannounced before Kevin Abstract’s set to deliver synth-laden rendition of hit country single

After years of sporadic live appearances — and even rarer releases of new music — Ferreira has been more active in recent years, including a North American tour in late 2023 and a just-concluded Europe jaunt earlier this month.

In 2022 brought “Don’t Forget,” which again pointed to the possibility that her second set was forthcoming, but it has still didn’t arrive.
