Australian singer/songwriter Alex Lahey has shared a new song, “Sucker For Punishment,” via a lyric video for track. She has also announced some new U.S. tour dates. The song comments on social media with a chorus that goes “Jesus Christ, I am scrolling all the time/I’m just used to it/I swear I’m fine.” Check out the song and tour dates below.

Lahey had this to say about the song in a press release: “We’re living in an era we’re the micro has become the macro. I don’t think there has ever been a time where our actions and attitudes as individuals have had such an impact on broader humanity and the planet. Whether it’s a ‘think about it later’ attitude towards climate change, the undemocratic consequences of sharing personal data to big business online, a lethargicness in the face of political engagement or the need to be validated as a worthwhile individual through obtaining arbitrary units of engagement on social media - we need to catch ourselves out before we suffer greater consequences.”

“Sucker For Punishment” follows Lahey’s sophomore album, The Best of Luck Club, which came out last year via Dead Oceans. The Best of Luck Club was one of our Top 100 Albums of 2019.
