The track is the latest to be taken from her new album ‘Flux’, produced by Justin Meldal-Johnsen (M83, Deafheaven, St. Vincent), and follows ‘Her’, the title track, and previous surprise EP ‘Eat’.

The self-directed video showcases a taste of Poppy’s live show in which she performs in a small room with a full live band. “Can you keep a secret? Keep it undercover/ Every day I wake up, it’s a struggle,” she sings on the track.

Poppy released her latest album, ‘I Disagree’, in January 2020.

In a four-star review of the record, NME wrote: “‘I Disagree’ is [Poppy’s] most accomplished record, full of daring theatre and snarling forward motion. While all our favourite rock bands are going pop, Poppy is unapologetically embracing her desire to go heavy.”
