Girlpool have shared new cut "Dragging My Life Into a Dream" as the third preview of their forthcoming album Forgiveness.

"Dragging My Life Into a Dream" is Girlpool's third outing from their Forgiveness album, following "Lie Love Lullaby" and "Faultline", and arrives with a self-directed video.

"I wrote "Dragging My Life Into a Dream" after going out to a party," Avery Tucker explains. "I had spent the last year confronting being on my own in a way I had been avoiding for a long time. Although I knew that I was growing and still needed to heal from past relationships, I missed feeling connected to somebody and inspired. This song is about romanticizing a past time and also longing for my heart to feel open and innocent again."

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

Tucker adds of the album, "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."

Bandmate Harmony Tividad also says, "A lot of life feels like unavoidable experiences to me. To me, Forgiveness is about accepting that concept. It’s about forgiving reality for having to be exactly what it is all the time."

"Dragging My Life Into a Dream" is out now. Girlpool's Forgiveness album will be released 29 April via ANTI- Records, and is available to pre-order now.
