Kelsey Lu and Yves Tumor have teamed up for a new song. The track, titled “let all the poisons that lurk in the mud seep out,” also features Kelly Moran and Moses Boyd. Check it out below.
In a statement, Kelsey Lu said:
“let all the poisons that lurk in the mud seep out” is about Taking Risks and plunging heedlessly into the unknown. embracing your dark side that is ultimately your light side. going manic and pulling yourself out of that mania. accepting the challenge of being wholly and completely yourself, a mutant that bends itself backwards to embrace it’s true nature and the depth that lies within. The way this song has evolved is a mirror to how processing can be fragmented through time. From my delirious vocal takes I did alone in an Airbnb in between touring Blood, dragging the mic into the bathroom while I pee which happens to be an imperative textural element of the song itself, and to everyone else who is a part of this song being in different corners of the world who each of which I have a personal relationship with mostly through Collaboration which is such an imperative part of my practice. This song also marks an evolution since my departure from a major label, and the work I’ve done between then and now that’s been deconstructing the poisons that ever brought me any kind of doubt as to the power that lies within my artistry and killing it.
So. let all the poisons that lurk in the mud seep out. A Christmas miracle!
