Helena Deland Unveils New Song ‘Spring Bug’

    Helena Deland has released a new song, ‘Spring Bug’. It follows her recent collaboration with claire rousay, ‘Deceiver’, which made our Best New Songs list. Give the track a listen below.

    “Spring sun and spring rain make past selves sprout out of the ground,” Deland reflected in a statement. “The question of whether or not to leave this town becomes the background on which they wreak havoc. But it’s like Joan Didion says, ’we are well-advised to keep on nodding terms with the people we used to be, whether we find them attractive company or not. Otherwise they turn up unannounced and surprise us, come hammering on the mind’s door at 4am on a bad night and demand to know who deserted them, who betrayed them, who is going to make amends.’ ‘Spring Bug’ is the wave of a hand trying to shoo off a noisy flying creature, and the creature is me! Thank you for listening.”

    Last year, Helena Deland shared ‘Swimmer’, which marked her first solo music since 2020’s Someone New. In 2021, her collaborative project with Ouri, Hildegard, released a self-titled album.
