"Cross Yourself" is the duo's first outing of 2021, following standalone single "Saturday," that arrived in September last year.

IDER say of the new song, which features additional production from Salka Valsdóttir (Daughters of Reykjavík, CYBER), ""Cross Yourself" is a reflection on how we search for purpose - how we often attach meaning to things or like the idea of something external to believe in, in exchange for believing in ourselves."

shame will follow IDER's 2019 debut album Emotional Education, and is made up of tracks that were largely written in Berlin during the coronavirus pandemic.

IDER, aka Megan Markwick and Lily Somerville, say of the process, "We got there, and we got COVID four weeks later. We had three weeks of heaven where we wrote so much new music and it was everything we dreamed of, living that chaotic, no-routine lifestyle. We Thelma and Louised it back, because the messaging at the time was "if you don’t come back to London now, you never will.""
