Alice Merton is ready to “Lash Out” on new song
Alice Merton has premiered a new track called “Lash Out.” The defiant tune is the follow-up single to the German-Canadian-English musician’s breakthrough hit, “No Roots.”
“Being an artist and a human in this world always means confronting people who make you feel like you have to act according to their rules,” says Merton in a statement.
“Like most people, I wanted and still want to live by my own rules. The idea, or, if you like, the need, to write and record ‘Lash Out’ was born of a feeling within me.”
Both “Last Out” and “No Roots” are included on Merton’s new No Roots EP, which is out today on digital platforms.
Merton will be opening for Vance Joy on a North American tour starting May 15 in Charlottesville, Virginia.
She’s also hitting a number of festivals this spring and summer, including BottleRock, Governors Ball and Firefly.
