dodie has delivered her new single "Hate Myself" as the third preview of her forthcoming debut album Build A Problem.
She says of the song and video, ""Hate Myself" is an inner monologue of someone who seems to find themselves in relationships of any kind with people who deal with their feelings internally - unfortunately resulting in assuming the issue is with them. The music video is filmed over the span of a few days in the beautiful seaside village of Polperro in Cornwall, and also a boat in London. My video partner and the director Sammy Paul and I excitedly landed on the silly idea of the training leading up to becoming a post-lady, and thoroughly enjoyed planning the many bizarre exercises she would have to perfect. Our excellent Art Director, Louis Grant, worked on bringing her home and training station to life. Though jogging on cliff tops in the rain, carrying a large sack and slipping in the mud was certainly cold and exhausting, I think I preferred it to slowly feeling sicker, licking stamps on a swaying boat by the Excel."
dodie penned the songs for Build A Problem over the space of two years. She said, "I think I was going through a crisis actually. I was very unsure of who I was and I was trying to figure it out in music. So I think it’s quite unstable of an album - but it’s definitely honest."
On how she hopes listeners will receive the album, dodie added, "I’d like people to come away from this album knowing what I can do."
