S.T.S (an abbreviation of Survive The Summer) is the second extended play (EP) by Australian rapper Iggy Azalea.

It was released on August 3, 2018 through Island Records. The pre-order was made available on July 6, 2018 along with the arrival of the lead single “Kream” featuring Tyga and the first promotional single entitled “Tokyo Snow Trip”.

Developed as a "visual extended play", Azalea’s songs will be accompanied by non-linear short films that will illustrate the musical concepts conceived during production.

Works began in mid-2017 after the album Digital Distortion was scrapped.
