Los Angeles-based trio Cherry Glazerr are releasing a new album, Stuffed & Ready, on February 1 via Secretly Canadian. Previously they shared its first single, the Blonde Redhead-sounding "Daddi," via a video for the song (it was one of our Songs of the Week). Now they have shared another song from the album, "Wasted Nun," via a video for the track. Jess Calleiro directed the clip, which stars singer Clementine Creevy as a twisted nun. Watch it below.

Creevy had this to say about the song in a press release: "'Wasted Nun' is about a woman trying to come to grips with her life. She's a tragic woman. She hates herself and is trying to move through the world but gets deflated by extreme self-loathing. She wants to harness the power of the universe but instead she turns to self-destruction. The song is aggressive and intense because I'm letting out my anger, I'm enraged. People want girls to be strong, I want to be strong, but I just feel angry, and those are two very different things. There's a stubbornness there, I know."

Collins had this to say about the video: "Music, blood, blades, babes. Sometimes anger looks like a weird beautiful demon nun that wants to rip right through you! You're not sure how she'll do it, but you know you want her to! The soft and sharp of brutality makes you want to bite down on something and rip it off! RIP IT UP! DO SOMETHING!"

Stuffed & Ready is the band's fourth album and the follow-up to Apocalypstick, which was released on President Donald Trump's Inauguration Day in 2017. Instead of focusing on political songwriting, the craziness of the last two years made 22-year-old Creevy turn inwards.

"I am telling my story of how I feel and where I am in life," she says in a press release. "I've felt the need to explain my feelings...not just state them, but search for why I feel the way I do honestly. With Apocalipstick, I was an over-confident teenager trying to solve the world's problems. With Stuffed & Ready, I'm a much more weary and perhaps a more cynical woman who believes you need to figure your own self out first."

Cherry Glazerr is now a three-piece also featuring drummer Tabor Allen and bassist Devin O'Brien, with synth player Sasami Ashworth moving on to her own solo work. An initial version of Stuffed & Ready was recorded in early in 2018 with engineer/musician John Vanderslice. Creevy says that resulted in a "very live sounding, self-produced album, which was cool, but wasn't exactly what I wanted to put into the ether right now."

The band then turned to Carlos de la Garza, who had co-produced Apocalipstick. "I wanted a producer to push me," Creevy explains. "I wanted to be questioned, to rip my songs apart and look at their guts and pour myself open again. And I wanted it to sound massive."
