Alice Glass shares a cover of The Smashing Pumpkins’ cult hit “Drown.” Glass’ take on the song showcases her trademark vocals and puts an anthemic twist on the original complements of production from her long standing collaborator Jupiter Keyes. The song marks her first official release of 2024, ahead of a new project due this Summer. 

Speaking about the origin of the cover, Glass shares:

“I believe in the power of art to transcend betrayal and disappointment. ‘Drown’ is not just a cover; it’s a testament to resilience and artistic integrity. This track was created after we were asked to be a part of an exciting compilation that ultimately didn’t end up happening. But I didn’t want that to stop us from sharing our interpretation of this iconic Smashing Pumpkins track. This release is a declaration of autonomy and a reminder that true artistry cannot be stifled by broken promises.”
