Connie Constance has shared ‘Hurt You’, the fourth single cut from her second album, ‘Miss Power’, which is due next month.
Connie’s last extended release was her 2021 EP, ‘Prim & Propa’, which was described as “affirmingly brilliant” in a 4-star Dork review, which you can read in full here. She walked Dork through the release track-by-track, too – catch up on the breakdown here.
‘Hurt You’ follows previous singles ‘Miss Power’, ‘Til The World’s Awake’ and ‘Mood Hoover’.
On the track, the Watford-born indie-rocker shares:: “My revenge song, this is a song for all the villains that are just a product of their environment. This is for the Joker and Harley Quinn. In this realm, the villain is the people’s champion and anarchy reins. As an artist people think you just get lucky, one song blows up and that’s it you’re a success over night. No one sees the years before that, they don’t hear the years of music that didn’t make it out the hard drives or the note pads.”
“This song is about the lowest time in my life and in my career when Connie Constance the artist was dead and buried and it’s about how I climbed out of that grave and didn’t let anyone take my love of writing and my hunger to share my music away from me,” she continues. “If I wasn’t mad before I’m definitely a bit crazy now. But I feel bulletproof cause I had to fight to get my powers back. Nobody should ever have to feel stuck or unworthy. I hope this song reaches anyone who feels trapped, scared, or squashed and I hope they listen to it before and after tell their oppressor to get fucked “
