Girlpool preview new album with fourth single "Nothing Gives Me Pleasure"

Girlpool have unveiled new single "Nothing Gives Me Pleasure" as the fourth outing from their upcoming album Forgiveness.

"Nothing Gives Me Pleasure" is accompanied by a Aerin Moreno-directed video, and will feature on Girlpool's Forgiveness album with earlier singles "Dragging My Life Into a Dream", "Lie Love Lullaby" and "Faultline".

The duo's Harmony Tividad says of the new outing, ""Nothing Gives Me Pleasure" is about trying to love yourself when it feels like no one else will. It was written during a time when I was working so hard to get someone specific to love and recognise me. On the path to doing that, I diluted myself so much that I lost sight of my own needs. This video plays with the lengths we go to to feel loved and how so many faces of intimacy may disguise what love actually looks like to us specifically. I have a history of getting lost in the labyrinth in the struggle for affection. In this video I wanted to interface with my own patterns in the attempt to better see and love myself."

Forgiveness will follow the duo's 2019 album What Chaos Is Imaginary, and is produced by Yves Rothman (Yves Tumor, Miya Folick).

Avery Tucker said of the record, "A lot of my songs on this record are about relationship dynamics where I experienced frustration and pain, and struggling to hold a lot of complexity in my emotions. Writing Forgiveness helped me fit all those pieces into an acceptance: that my fate pushes me exactly where I need to go."

"Nothing Gives Me Pleasure" is out now. Girlpool's Forgiveness album will be released 29 April via ANTI- Records, and is available to pre-order now.
