Ellen Kempner’s Palehound have released the pure and positive new track titled “Worthy” off of their forthcoming album Black Friday, arriving via Polyvinyl on June 7.
Kempner said of the tune’s message and the narrative of its corresponding video:
“Worthy” is a song about feeling unworthy of love even within a relationship. It’s about years of being conditioned to hate my body and the shock of finding someone who isn’t telling me to change. Choosing to believe the person who believes in you is a wild journey especially when it correlates with ebb and flow of a partnership. The video, directed by Robert Kolodny, is a continuation of the video for “Aaron.” It’s the same characters but in this one I am mask-less and talking my way towards my companion, our shrinking distance represented by a string that ties us together.
