The latest single from Bitch, “New Year” is a dance epic of purpose and power and pure explosive joy.
With her soulful vitality and do-or-die intensity, the L.A.-based singer/producer transforms her sharp-eyed commentary into a wildly cathartic anthem. And though it’s a sonic departure from her work in the alt-folk duo Bitch and Animal, “New Year” unfolds with the same electrifying presence Bitch has always brought to her music—an irrepressible energy that makes the track feel immediately essential.
“‘New Year’ is about empowerment,” says Bitch. “It’s about claiming who you are, and letting go of patterns that no longer serve you.”
For Bitch, “New Year” marks the start of a new chapter in a life long guided by musical passion. In addition to releasing three Bitch and Animal albums (including two on Ani DiFranco’s Righteous Babe Records), she put out a solo album via Kill Rock Stars, three on her own imprint (Short Story Records), and also starred as herself in Shortbus (the 2006 feature film from Hedwig and the Angry Inch’s John Cameron Mitchell).
Along with driving home Bitch’s themes of self-liberation and solidarity, the “New Year” video embodies the unfettered spirit at the heart of the song. “To me it’s very much a celebration,” she says. It’s about taking stock of what the world has done to us and what we’ve bought into, and then plunging forward into the new year with a new sense of boldness—like, ‘Here I fucking am.’”
