“I’m thinking through childhood and having children, wondering if it’s possible for someone to prevent their failures and shortcomings from getting passed on,” L’Rain explained in a press release. “‘Suck Teeth’ was originally going to be the name of the entire album because I loved how it encapsulated a very Black sound of disapproval, annoyance, and disappointment.”
She added: “This song also includes a hand game I made up with my collaborator Ben Chapoteau-Katz to add to the percussive sound in the second verse. I wanted to very specifically invoke children’s play, even if it wasn’t obvious, I wanted the listener to feel it.”
Along with the new single, the Brooklyn-based artist has also announced a set of tour dates across the UK and EU in November, which you can find below. Previously, L’Rain shared the songs ‘Two Face’ and ‘Blame Me’. Fatigue is out June 25 via Mexican Summer.
