Speedy Ortiz frontwoman Sadie Dupuis is releasing her debut solo album under the moniker Sad13. The album, Slugger, is due out November 11 via Carpark. Previously she shared its first single, “Get a Yes,” along with ”<2.” Now here’s another song from the album, “Devil in U,” which you can listen to below.

Dupuis had this to say about the song in a press release: “It’s about constraining your life to avoid conflict in the face of emotional abuse. You cut yourself off from your support systems and passions to prevent and assuage your partner’s irrational reactions; you force yourself to fit another person’s definition of ‘angelic’ so as not to provoke their ‘devilish’ side. But no devil is worth your care if they don’t love and support you for who you are. And if the ‘Devil in U’ causes you to hurt someone you supposedly love, maybe you’re just the devil, period.”

The album was recorded after Dupuis relocated to Philadelphia. “I wrote and played and recorded almost all of it in the two weeks I was subletting a friend’s tiny bedroom,” says Dupuis, who self-produced Slugger. The album was mixed by Gabe Wax (Beirut, Wye Oak, Boots), mastered by Emily Lazar (Sia, HAIM, Sky Ferreira), and on its final track, “Coming Into Powers,” features a guest appearance from rapper, producer, and PhD student Sammus.
