Former The Distillers frontwoman Brody Dalle will be touring and releasing an album titled "Diploid Love" in the next few months as a solo artist.
She has debuted the new song "Meet the Foetus/Oh Joy," which features backing vocals from Garbage's Shirley Manson and Warpaint's Emily Kowal.
We love this trifecta of amazing rockin' females.
Intel on the album and what Brody has been up to:
Dalle spent a year writing, playing, recording and co-producing her first solo album, a riotous blast of punk rock with a pop sheen that storms through ideas about the modern age, triumphing against the odds and even spirituality.
Also, she co-produced everything with Alain Johannes (Arctic Monkeys, Them Crooked Vultures, Mark Lanegan) at his 11AD studio, and at her and husband Josh Homme's (Queens of the Stone Age) studio Pink Duck, both in California.
Go ahead, listen to the track below.
Brody Dalle is so our girl crush, since she does it all.
"I've always had a hand in crafting how it's going to sound and hearing it and trying to make that happen. But it's the first time I've put my name on something for production," Dalle says of the release. She wrote all the songs and played over most of the instruments you can hear on the album, save for a few special guests.
Um, did we mention she is our girl crush? Oh yeah, we did.
Brody has had a long, wild career in music. "It's the only job I've ever had and I love it," she said.
In her native Australia, her first band, Sourpuss, got her signed at 15; she later moved to L.A. and formed The Distillers, becoming pack leader of a band of hardcore reprobates, and spending her 20s touring the world. After that, she released a killer album rife with hooks under the name Spinnerette and now she returns in fighting form under her own name with her own solo project.
Girl crush x 10. We know, we are repeating ourselves but we lurve Brody Dalle.
Did you feel joy when listening to "Meet the Foetus/Oh Joy?"
