Indigo De Souza has announced her upcoming full-length album Any Shape You Take, out via Saddle Creek on August 27th. Along with the news, the artist has shared her new single and video directed by Jordan Alexander titled “Kill Me.” The song dates back to 2018ish when De Souza was struggling with a relationship and her own mental health. The lyrics feel like shards of memories coming from a chaotic headspace that delineates a very strange phase of someone’s life: 

According to Indigo De Souza, “I wrote ‘Kill Me’ sometime in 2018 when I was really tired and fucked up in a lot of ways. I was deeply consumed in a big crazy love and coming to terms with the reality of living with mental illness. I recorded myself stream-of-conscious singing it on the kitchen floor at night with my laptop cam. I found the video about a year later, and could barely recognize the person singing. It was such a strange feeling watching the video because I couldn’t remember writing the song, but little bits and pieces of it felt familiar to me. It felt like it had been a lot longer than a year.”

Video director Jordan Alexander commented, “We wanted to make a film about performance and stage an event that would get the crew and actors going. Cake sitting is this wonderful art form, rampant with metaphors of creation and destruction, engaging in equal parts with desire and disgust. It lends itself to the song and Indigo came over to test it out and was way better at it than I am.”

De Souza will go on tour this summer and fall. Tickets will go on sale this Friday at 10am EST:
