Emma Ruth Rundle has announced a new album. On November 5, Rundle will release Engine of Hell, her fifth full-length solo record, via Sargent House. The first single she’s released is titled “Return.” Watch its video, directed by Rundle, below.
Rundle says of “Return” in a statement, “An examination of the existential. A fractured poem. Trying to quantify what something is definitely about or pontificating on it’s concrete meaning defeats the purpose of art making. I’m not a writer. I make music and images to express things that my words cannot convey or emote. I’ve been studying ballet and the practice of expression through movement, which I incorporated into the video. I choreographed a dance to the song – some of which you see. Pieces show through. Since completing ‘Engine of Hell’, I’ve stepped away from music more and more and into things like dance, painting and working on ideas for videos or little films. ‘Return’ is the result of the efforts.”
