Chelsea Wolfe has revealed her delicate new single "Be All Things" from her upcoming album Birth of Violence.
Having shared an ASMR lyric video for "Be All Things" last Sunday (11 August), Wolfe has revealed the full single, accompanied by a haunting video by Ben Chisholm.
Speaking about the new single, Wolfe explains, ""Be All Things" is about navigating the world as a woman: reconciling the soft and the strong, balancing the warrior and the goddess, and wanting to be everything and nothing at the same time. Telling stories through song allows me to explore so many facets of myself; so many lives within. Some days I want to be quiet and reach my roots into the earth, and some days I want to spring up from the ground and be all things."
Of the video, Wolfe adds, "The video is a culmination of footage taken in a few magical locations. Around southwestern Iceland, while shooting the Birth of Violence album cover, inside Moaning Cavern in Northern California - a marble cavern 450 feet deep that I visited as a child and sang in as an adult, sending my voice out as heavy as I could against the powerful dampness and sparkles of the ancient cave walls. A special spot in nature not far from my home where the Manzanita grows up like a red and green tunnel, and a historic California hotel from the Victorian era where many from the past rested their heads."
Birth of Violence is Wolfe's first album since 2017's Hiss Spun.
