Princess Nokia dials one up for the goth kids in the back row.


If Princess Nokia's A Girl Called Red is her affirmative record of 'acceptance' then "Your Eyes Are Bleeding" is the main thesis. The lead single dropped on Thursday with a video reel supporting it. The song communicates various themes of despondence very succinctly. Nokia raps about facing her demons haphazardly while placing the blame elsewhere.

"Your Eyes Are Bleeding" was directed by Milah Libin and Frasqueri and features footage compiled throughout her 1992 Deluxe tour as well as an evocative vignette of her trading spots with a teenage goth. If you ever had an emo phase, this one's for you.

Quotable Lyrics:

Everyone I love has an expiration shelf
Everyone I love leaves me when I need them most
My little heart is broken and the world will pay the cost
Smash my heart in pieces (smash my heart in pieces)
It looks so good on the floor (it looks good on the floor)
Now I really hate you (you know I hate you)
And I wanna hate you more (you know I hate you more)
