Dora Jar has shared new single “Timelapse”, the track is now out via Island Records, and An ode to a life chapter spent living in New York City, where Dora was born. “Timelapse” opens with an ever-burning existential query: “Who Am I?” The cinematic new single sonically illustrates New York City’s endless twists and turns, taking listeners on a journey that mirrors Dora’s urge to self-examine. “Who am I?” is a recurring question I ask throughout my album,” Dora explains. She adds, “When I moved back to New York in my early adulthood, it was the first time I felt like I could have fun living the answer to that question. New York moves so fast, your surroundings blur, and change feels more intense and inevitable. I wanted this song to sound like getting lost in the busy time lapse of life.”

The track follows Dora’s single and video “She Loves Me”—a study of the layers of her personhood that references Dora’s internal conversations with the two sides of herself: who she is in a group of people versus who she is alone. In its accompanying music video (inspired by true events and directed by Erica Snyder) Dora blurs the line between her public and her private selves, dancing around a Berlin apartment party in a towel amongst friends and strangers. “She Loves Me” was Dora’s first new release this year following 2023’s “Puppet”—an expressive, glam rock track signaling a new era in Dora’s sound. In February, fellow pop maverick Ashnikko tapped Dora to remix her 2023 single “You Make Me Sick!”.
