This week I’m donating to the Nationwide Bail Fund. In addition, ALL PRE-ORDERS of BITTER BETTER between June 1 (retroactively) and June 7 will be donated to the Nationwide Bail Fund (link to pre-order in bio). For those of you that don't know, the Nationwide Bail fund is a way to support 60+ community bail funds, mutual aid funds, and racial justice organizers across the US. While my anti-racist and social justice work needs to be more constant I am determined not to let that or geographical distance prevent me from supporting the current protests. From here in Belgium I don't have the opportunity to stand as an ally with those of you in the US but I will use my platform to help ensure that black and brown people doing this work are given the support they need. DM me if you have any questions. I will also be using my platform between now and June 7 and beyond to #amplifymelanatedvoices. Stay tuned.
In reflection and solidarity. #blackouttuesday #theshowmustbepaused
A little @spotifybe playlist love on release day!! ❤️ (link in bio) #LCDC
DREAMING out now on all streaming platforms (link in bio). Dreaming is the last song I wrote for BITTER BETTER. It's impressionistic glimpses from my new home in Ghent, Belgium. I was struggling with the juxtaposition of feeling more grounded, creative, and content than I have in a long time, and all the while wishing the news from back home was just a bad dream. Those conflicted feelings are even more potent today. So glad I can finally share this with all of you. I hope it lifts your spirits and gives you a reason to move your body. If you find yourself grooving along, take a video and post it. AND, this new song comes with a brand new music video, shot in an old theater, with dancing by the band as well as some extremely talented professionals. I would love for you to watch it, and if you like it, share it with friends.

Thanks to @ventsmagazine for asking all the tough questions about the making of BITTER BETTER and my process in general like, “How has Prince and Robyn influenced your writing?” LINK IN BIO! Photo by @bethchalmersphoto_
