Alice Glass has announced the details of her debut solo full-length, PREY///IV, which will be released on January 28 via her own Eating Glass Records. The LP includes the new single ‘Baby Teeth’, which is accompanied by a video created by Lucas David and Astra Zero. Watch and listen below.
Glass shared the following statement on the new track:
I like to make songs that you can dance to when you’re sad. “Baby Teeth” is probably the darkest and most hopeless track on my record, but it sounds misleadingly hopeful.
“Baby Teeth” is about embracing despair. It understands that violence against the vulnerable is inevitable, and it probably always will be. There will always be people that prey on others for their own gain, sometimes ruining lives for the most fleeting selfish pleasures. This is human nature, and it hurts too much to think about. And sometimes, the only power it feels like we have left is to say, “Hey, you can’t hurt me, because I’m hurting myself first. I’ve beat you to it.”
It’s bleak, but this is a reality many of us struggle with. It isn’t fair. It never will be.
PREY///IV marks Glass’ first solo album since leaving her former band Crystal Castles in 2014. The record will follow her 2017 Alice Glass EP and features the early tracks ‘I Trusted You’ and ‘SUFFER AND SWALLOW’.
