Alice Glass has shared ‘Love Is Violence’, the latest single from her debut solo LP Prey//IV. Originally set for release today (January 28), the album will now come out on February 16 via her own Eating Glass Records. Check out the new track below, alongside a music video directed by Bryan M. Ferguson.
“Almost everyone can relate to the sometimes unbearable ups and downs that occur in relationships,” Glass said of the inspiration behind ‘Love Is Violence’ in a statement. “But for those of us who have dealt with manipulative or toxic partners, there is a whole other layer of pain. Any person who uses their partner’s “love” to control, use, and hurt them is using one of the most cruel and disgusting manipulative tactics in human experience. Disguising power struggles and calling it “Love” it’s a form of violence against a partner. I want to help people to see those red flags and encourage them to remove themselves from those types of toxic situations.”
Prey//IV, which follows 2017’s Alice Glass EP, includes the previously unveiled tracks ‘I Trusted You’, ‘Suffer and Swallow’, and ‘Fair Game’.
