Lydia Loveless Announces New Album, Releases New Song ‘Toothache’

    Lydia Loveless has announced a new album titled Nothing’s Gonna Stand in My Way Again. The follow-up to 2020’s Daughter arrives September 22 via Bloodshot. Lead single ‘Toothache’ is out today alongside an accompanying video directed by Katie Harriman. Check it out below and scroll down for the album cover and full tracklist.

    According to Loveless, the new song was “inspired by a literal toothache and knowing there were way too many other things on my plate at the time to be concerned with my fucking tooth. The millions of little things that pile up when you’re broke and overwhelmed until you snap over the dumbest thing, like running out of dish soap…I struggled with whether or not I could write an anthem with the chorus just being ‘Now I’ve got a toothache!’ But I couldn’t get it out of my head. Sometimes you just have to go with your gut.”

    Of the video, Loveless added: “I really wanted to do something Bob Fosse inspired. Am I Bob Fosse? Absolutely not. But I think the bleak frustration came across regardless. We shot from 10pm to around 3am at Secret Studios. We all just felt like lunatics by the end of everything which is what the song needed.”
