Alice Glass has debuted a new track, “Cease And Desist,” her first new music since the release of her debut solo EP, which featured singles “Without Love” and “Forgiveness.”
“Cease And Desist” was written by Glass, with additional writing and production from Jupiter Keyes (formerly of HEALTH) and noisecore producer Dreamcrusher. The abrasive, dirty noise-pop track’s freaky accompanying video features rapid-fire, flashing, washed-out images of Glass and everything from cartoon characters and gas pumps to spiders and a spinning globe.
Glass said of the track:
This song is a call to arms for all survivors. But being a survivor often means feeling afraid, it means sometimes feeling worthless, like you can’t go on. We need to fight back against those who have victimized us and against the feelings that tell us to give up inside. Sometimes we think we deserve the pain others have inflicted on us. This song is what I need to tell myself to get through each day, and what I hope other survivors can remember when they feel like they can’t make it through the darkness of their own recovery. Every day is a fight.
Glass played her first solo shows last fall following her much-lauded, sold-out debut at Los Angeles’ The Echo, including several dates opening for Marilyn Manson. New music from Glass is set for release later this year.
