Blondshell has released a new single, “Docket feat: Bully,” the track is out today via Partisan Records. Blondshell will also appear on the forthcoming Everyone’s Getting Involved: A Tribute to Talking Heads’ Stop Making Sense, which is being released later this year via A24. The compilation also includes appearances from, among others, girl in red, The Linda Lindas, Lorde, Miley Cyrus, Paramore, and The National. The album is being released in celebration of the recent re-release of Jonathan Demme’s iconic concert film of the same name and the 40th anniversary of its accompanying soundtrack album.

“Docket” lyrics

I said don’t shake my hand it’s wet

He said I’ll kiss it instead

He said I saw the whole show

I’m not scared of the sweat

But I’m scared of the touching

I have someone at home

And I want his body more

When he leaves me alone

Blondshell reflecting on the track and working with Bully:

“For me this is a song about splitting off from yourself. It’s about uncertainty when you’re in different environments all the time. In a way it’s about wanting to cope with distance and change but it’s also just a bit about being reckless.

I had space on this song for another person and I kept hearing Bully’s voice on it. I’m a huge fan of hers and when I was touring last summer I couldn’t stop listening to her album. Honestly when we were sitting in the studio and I heard her voice coming through I was just kind of shocked and in awe of her. I’m really happy she said yes to making the song with me.”

Bully (Alicia Bognanno) adds:

“I’m a huge fan of Sabrina, I think she is incredible and I was over the moon that she asked me to be a part of her song. It makes me really happy seeing so many musicians in our indie world supporting and admiring one another. So thank you Sabrina and special shout out to her dog who I am a massive fan of as well.”
