    Speedy Ortiz is set to release their first new full-length album in three years, Twerp Verse. Today they released the single "Lean In When I Suffer" along with its music video that you can watch above. "Lean In When I Suffer" is the record's second single and the video for it is quite colorful even though it touches the subject of depression.

    Front lady Sadie Dupuis said of the song and video: "It's about that fun breed of 'ally' who wears out their already exhausted friends by relying on us for excessive emotional labor. They want props for their wokeness, but don't want to put in any actual work or divest themselves of power. They just taaaake uuuup spaaaace, and shut down when you try to talk them through their problematic tendencies. Because #selfcare? So you're stuck in a toxic vampiric loop trying to maintain a relationship--Lean In AND Suffer, why don't you! Director Ari Ratner took this concept a step further to address another annoyance we found relatable as hell, which is when 'people give unsolicited advice about how to beat depression. [They] typically fail to acknowledge depression as a real illness and often minimize the experiences of the person they are trying to help.' So our OK-to-Cry-Corral band gets put through happiness bootcamp from a group of clowns who've 'never been sad' (and some accompanying Crayola-bright illustrations from Julia Emiliani). Ultimately, playing angry rock songs is our favorite form of therapy. And also, real therapy. That shit works."

    Twerp Verse will be released on April 27th via Carpark Records.
