TORRES Shares Video for New Song ‘I got the fear’

TORRES has shared a new single, ‘I got the fear’, from her forthcoming LP What an enormous room. Mackenzie Scott co-produced the track, which follows lead single ‘Collect’, with Sarah Jaffe. Check out its Dani Okon-direted video below.

Discussing the new song, Scott said in a statement: “A collective dread has been mounting. Everyone I know is having a brawl with the universe, with themselves…wars, climate catastrophe, a pandemic, the worldwide regression on human rights, the political hellscape — it affects everybody, and I know we’re all feeling it in waves of varying degree all the time. I think it’s really important that we find a way to get our hopes back up. I’m here to try to help light the way if I can. Most days I really believe humanity will find a way. But there’s a nagging anxiety that maybe that won’t happen. One has to wonder if it’s a self-fulfilling prophecy that a species that believes it’s doomed will doom itself.”

What an enormous room, the follow-up to 2021’s Thirstier, is out January 26 on Merge.
