Bully – AKA Alicia Bognanno – has returned with the release of an intimate piano ballad, "Atom Bomb".

"The song was originally recorded with a drum machine and electric guitar; it was also quite a bit faster," Bognanno explains. "When I played the demo for JT Daly (producer), he had the idea of moving it to the piano. I remember saying out loud, ‘Can you believe I'm trusting anybody like this?’ We both started laughing because starting off as someone who used to record, mix, and produce their own records to avoid the vulnerability that comes with working out creative ideas in the company of others, it was a huge step for me. That was our first real bonding moment, acknowledging that we were mutually up for trying new things and seeing each other's ideas through before one of us shut it down."

This stand-alone track follows the release of recent album Lucky For You. Additionally, Bognanno recently contributed original music to the Apple TV show Buccaneers and was featured on Militarie Gun’s recent song, "Never Fucked Up Twice".

Bully is currently on a tour of North America, performing in a rare solo setting while supporting Grouplove and returns to the UK for a standalone full-band show at London's Electric Ballroom on 14 November.

"Atom Bomb" is out now. For more information on Bully's live dates, visit
