Nashville-based singer Madi Diaz is releasing a new album, History of a Feeling, on August 27 via ANTI-. Now she has shared another song from it, the soulful and stripped back “Resentment,” via a video for it that features her in a junkyard. She has also announced some tour dates. $ECK directed the video, which was filmed at the Four Lane Auto Salvage in Nashville. Watch the video below, followed by the dates.

“It felt completely and strangely cathartic walking around ruin and wreckage in the salvage yard making the ‘Resentment’ video,” says Diaz in a press release. “It was somehow representative of all the feelings I’ve let sit and rot and rust, probably becoming more hazardous with time and neglect. It was almost a kind of joyful act smashing up cars like maybe I was crushing and compounding my own resentments. Basically it’s cheap therapy and I highly recommend it. I loved making this video and I think Seck has such a beautiful eye…somehow he made poetry out of something pretty brutal.”

Diaz has already shared three other songs from History of a Feeling: February’s “Man in Me,” March’s “New Person, Old Place,” and May’s “Nervous.” When the album was announced she shared a video for another new song, “Woman In My Heart,” which was one of our Songs of the Week.

Andrew Sarlo (Big Thief, Bon Iver) co-produced the album with Diaz.

Diaz had this to say about the album in a previous press release: “The bulk of this music came from dealing with a kind of tsunami clash of compassion, both for my former partner while she was discovering a deeper part of her gender identity long hidden, and my own raw heartache over having lost the partner I knew. I felt so torn through the middle because half of me wanted to hold this person through such a major life event, one that is so beautiful and hard, and the other half felt lost—like I had lost myself in someone else’s story.”
