Today, Katie Dey has shared a video for "stuck," the latest from her new album, solipsisters, out now via Run For Cover

Of the song Dey says "a lot of the songs on solipsisters are grappling with the fact that I have this body that I can't bear to live in. But also there are these other people in the world that I love, and they know me as this body and love me as this person, even though I can't stand to be that person anymore. And being like, 'Oh, if I change or if I escape, what about these people that love me? Will they still love me?'"


PRAISE FOR SOLIPSISTERS:
"An album about making peace with the body, when the body seems to be constantly contradicting the self living inside it - about seeking safety and companionship in a world hell-bent on forcing its more vulnerable denizens into isolation. It's also the most brazenly beautiful music Dey has put to tape, generous in its melodies and arresting in its dynamic, homespun production." -The FADER

"One of few songwriters adequately equipped to outline the particular anxieties of being alive in the internet era... That existential despair could be so beautiful is nothing short of inspiring." -Noisey

"Dense but approachable, a soothing sonic blanket that lays out bare insecurities but bundles them up in warm synths and digital strings."-Stereogum


ABOUT SOLIPSISTERS:
solipsisters, the follow-up to 2016's Flood Network, is a lost communique sent hurtling through the empty black of space. In these songs, Katie Dey refuses to be bound within the frailty of human form. solipsisters insists, lovingly, that our true home lies somewhere just beyond. Her voices crackles as it reaches out, crumbling into the gorgeousness of decay as it reaches toward heaven and falls back down again and again. For all their loveliness, Dey's songs are rooted in sorrow, in the tacit acknowledgment that this world was never safe for us. On solipsisters, Dey is resolute. Surrounded by whining whisper synths that mimic the cacophony of a dying world, her trembling voice pushes on into infinity. solipsisters is a dream made real. Here, Dey creates a world beyond the body, a world beyond the world. Here, at last, we are finally laid to rest, with one another, safe.
