Earlier this year Alice Glass hinted at finally releasing her debut album by sharing the single “Suffer and Swallow.” Today, she’s officially announced the anticipated solo LP titled PREY//IV with the single “Baby Teeth.” The forthcoming album is out January 28 via Eating Glass Records, and “Baby Teeth” comes with a video game–inspired visual where Glass battles terrifying red limbs and cockroaches.
“I like to make songs that you can dance to when you’re sad,” Glass said in a statement. “‘Baby Teeth’ is about embracing despair. It understands that violence against the vulnerable is inevitable, and it probably always will be. There will always be people that prey on others for their own gain, sometimes ruining lives for the most fleeting selfish pleasures. This is human nature, and it hurts too much to think about. And sometimes, the only power it feels like we have left is to say, ‘Hey, you can’t hurt me, because I’m hurting myself first. I’ve beat you to it.’ It’s bleak, but this is a reality many of us struggle with. It isn’t fair. It never will be.”
