Madi Diaz has released a new song called ‘Resentment’, the final offering from her forthcoming album History of a Feeling. Written by Diaz, Wrabel, and Jamie Floyd, the track originally appeared on Kesha’s 2020 album High Road and featured Sturgill Simpson and Brian Wilson. Diaz’s stripped-back version arrives today with a video directed by $ECK at the Four Lane Auto Salvage. Check it out below.
“It felt completely and strangely cathartic walking around ruin and wreckage in the salvage yard making the ‘Resentment’ video,” Diaz explained in a statement. “It was somehow representative of all the feelings I’ve let sit and rot and rust, probably becoming more hazardous with time and neglect. It was almost a kind of joyful act smashing up cars like maybe I was crushing and compounding my own resentments. Basically it’s cheap therapy and I highly recommend it. I loved making this video and I think $ECK has such a beautiful eye…somehow he made poetry out of something pretty brutal.”
History of a Feeling is set for release on August 27 via Anti-. So far, Diaz has previewed the LP with the singles ‘Woman in My Heart’, ‘Nervous’, ‘New Person, Old Place’, and ‘Man in Me’.
