Algiers I Can't Stand It

On February 10, Algiers release their new album SHOOK via Matador. And after releasing the previous singles “Irreversible Damage” with Zack de la Rocha and “Bite Back” featuring billy woods and Backxwash (one of our favorite songs of 2022), the group have shared a third single from the album. Today, they’ve released “I Can’t Stand It!”, featuring Samuel Herring from Future Islands and Jae Matthews of Boy Harsher.

Algiers’ Franklin James Fisher said in a press release, “It’s a very personal song about a devastating loss of someone I believed to be the love of my life which nearly ended in my suicide. I think the song’s narrative arc reflects the sense of dread and the path that led me to that moment. She put on ‘What You Don’t Want Me To Be’ the first time I heard it and I knew immediately that I was going to sample it—I just couldn’t have known the result would be a song about our own end. But every time I sing that song now it feels like I heal a little bit more.”
