Chelsea Wolfe has released a new single titled “Anhedonia,” which features vocals and guitar from Emma Ruth Rundle. It’s available right now on streaming and download services, and it’s a dark folk track with some doomy atmosphere lurking just underneath the surface.

Wolfe says about the song in a press release, “I’d been wanting to work on a song with Emma for a long time, so I recorded it and sent it her way. She graciously added her gorgeous vocals and lead guitar, and then Ben mixed it, adding his signature sound landscape as a fortress around the song. As I listened back to the final version, I was finally able to set free those emotions which I couldn’t feel back in 2019. I had worries around releasing the song, not wanting to romanticize the condition of anhedonia (the inability to feel pleasure), but I also understood that it could possibly be cathartic for others who are struggling, as it was for me, to sing and dance my way out of a depression.”

Rundle adds, ““I was moved to tears when she sent me Anhedonia, which made getting through the tracking very emotional and slow on my end. I love the way the guitars I tracked morphed in Ben’s mix. The whole song swirls in a poignant eddy of sorrowful sound and still takes a hard swing at my heart hearing it now.”

Chelsea Wolfe’s last album was 2019’s Birth of Violence. Emma Ruth Rundle and Thou’s May Our Chambers Be Full, which was released in October, was our number one album of 2020.
