Elliphant has unveiled her brand new single “Uterus” today. Recorded in one take at producers Peter Harper and Jason Blynn’s Silver Lake, CA studio, “Uterus” marks Elliphant’s most vulnerable yet equally powerful release to date. It also stands as her first official solo release in four years, arriving on the heels of her final trimester of pregnancy.
Elliphant on “Uterus:”
“”Uterus” was written in the grass on a guitar, high over the Pacific Ocean, and just under the mountain tops in Malibu.It was one of my absolute favorite sessions with two of my absolute favorite producers.” Lyrically, the track touches on the idea that the safety of the womb is gone with the wind the second you are born. It’s hard to live, hard to hold on to who you are, and even harder to let go of what you have become. The pureness of life is so fragile, and to be born is the beginning of the end.
Accompanying the new song is a stunning music video featuring Elliphant. Directed by Stockholm-native Liza Morberg (Mapei, Loreen, Robin Schulz feat. James Black), the video was shot in and around the majestic grounds of Sweden’s Tullgarn Palace.
