Indigo De Souza debuts “Real Pain” single from upcoming album


Today, Indigo De Souza releases “Real Pain,” the latest single from her anticipated new album Any Shape You Take. The track features a collage of voices culled from fans that De Souza received after posting online asking for “screams, yells and anything else.”

“‘Real Pain’ is about facing grief and loss and having compassion for yourself in that space. It’s about learning to be unafraid of experiencing a full spectrum of emotion, and welcoming the way it teaches you and changes you,” De Souza says of the song. “For one of the sections in the song, I put out an invitation for people to anonymously send me voice memos of “screams, yells, and anything else”. I layered the voices on top of one another to embody a kind of collective experience. I felt an incredible catharsis hearing their voices stacked with mine. While we live such separate lives, we are connected in the way that we all navigate immense amounts of pain and love and fear in our bodies every day. It can be hard to be a person! It’s okay to acknowledge that sometimes. It’s okay to feel things fully and to allow others space to do the same.”

Any Shape You Take, produced by De Souza and Brad Cook (Bon Iver, Waxahatchee), is available for pre-order now and out August 27th via Saddle Creek.

Indigo De Souza is scheduled to play a full band livestream this Thursday Aug 12 at 7 PM EST for Bowery Presents’ Twitch channel live from Music Hall of Williamsburg in Brooklyn NY.

Additionally, De Souza is touring the US in support of Any Shape You Take.
