Indigo De Souza Releases New Single ‘Real Pain’

    Indigo De Souza has released a new song, ‘Real Pain’, the latest offering from her forthcoming album Any Shape You TakeCheck it out below.

    “‘Real Pain’ is about facing grief and loss and having compassion for yourself in that space,” De Souza said the new track in a statement. “It’s about learning to be unafraid of experiencing a full spectrum of emotion, and welcoming the way it teaches you and changes you. For one of the sections in the song, I put out an invitation for people to anonymously send me voice memos of ‘screams, yells, and anything else’. I layered the voices on top of one another to embody a kind of collective experience. I felt an incredible catharsis hearing their voices stacked with mine. While we live such separate lives, we are connected in the way that we all navigate immense amounts of pain and love and fear in our bodies every day. It can be hard to be a person! It’s okay to acknowledge that sometimes. It’s okay to feel things fully and to allow others space to do the same.”

    Any Shape You Take arrives August 27 via Saddle Creek. It includes the previously released tracks ‘Kill Me’ and ‘Hold U’.
