Alice Glass presents debut solo single ‘Stillbirth’

Alice Glass - Stillbirth

Charismatic former CRYSTAL CASTLES singer ALICE GLASS has unleashed Stillbirth, her first solo track since her departure from the band. The barely three-minute long piece was produced by Jupiter Keyes of Californian noise rockers HEALTH. The release also comes with a big and emotional statement on her freshly launched website where she talks about being in an abusive relationship for years. She explains: ‘I want young women and young men to understand that this kind of treatment of others can happen where it might be least expected.’

The ALICE GLASS solo single will be released digitally without a label tomorrow. All proceeds for digital purchases of Stillbirth will benefit organizations (like the nonprofit RAINN) that help survivors of domestic abuse, sexual violence and incest. The artist hints on more music soon. Listen right here.
