Claire Cronin has unveiled the new song ‘Feel This’, which is set to appear on her forthcoming album Bloodless. It’s the third and final single from the LP, following the title track and ‘No Forcefield’. Listen to it below.
“This is the most vulnerable song on the record,” Cronin said of ‘Feel This’ in a statement. “It’s about longing to transcend myself and get out of my body. I’m reflecting on my intimate relationships in the context of this desire to self-vacate, and acknowledging that I can’t float away and be a spirit. I have to stay here and feel different moods wash through me. I’m also thinking of myself as one of many people who want to transcend their bodies, numb out, or feel limitless — like when the lyrics mention the ‘gold, guns, and Vicodin’ of America. The repetition of ‘feel this’ in the chorus is an instruction to myself, where each ‘this’ is a different feeling I have to stay with.”
Bloodless is due for release on November 12 via Orindal Records.
