Louise Burns announced her new album, Element (which is coming April 21) and shared the brand new single and album opener, “I Don’t Feel It Like I Used To.” Following the release, she has dropped a music video for the track today.

About “I Don’t Feel It Like I Used To,” Burns shares:

“This is the first song I wrote for what became the album. I felt torn between writing something more gothic country like my older catalogue, or trip hop and sample based like the music I was listening to. Naturally it turned into both, which is a testament to the song’s story: an homage to my new found not really worrying about what people think my music, or me, might be, and focusing on what I like and what inspires me. Not feeling ‘it’ like I used to is referring to the full body forward momentum I was feeling of getting over something that wasn’t good for me. Leaving behind your past, both physically and mentally, can be a glorious thing.”
