Little Scream (aka Laurel Sprengelmeyer) is releasing a new album, Speed Queen, on October 25 via Merge. Previously she shared its first single, "Dear Leader," via a lyric video for the protest track (it was one of our Songs if the Week). Now she has shared another song from the album, "Still Life." Listen below.

Sprengelmeyer had this to say about the song in a press release: "Much of my new record Speed Queen touches on class, poverty, and politics. But there are a few exceptions, and all of these exceptions have one thing in common-they all reference painting. I guess painting is my 'happy place,' and the thing that gave me a break from the other heavy subject matter. 'Still Life' is a song that grew out of a fragment Mike Feuerstack had started and shared with me. I had just been discussing that Manet painting Un bar aux Folies Bergère, and I finished writing the song with the unrequited longing that painting has always inspired in me."

Speed Queen is the follow-up to 2016's Cult Following. The "Dear Leader" lyric video featured cameos from The National, Arcade Fire, Superchunk, Holly Miranda, Leif Vollebekk, Mélissa Laveaux, and more.
