Palehound (aka Ellen Kempner) is releasing a new album, Black Friday, on June 7 via Polyvinyl. Now she has shared another song from it, “Worthy,” via a video for the track. Robert Kolodny directed the video. Watch it below, followed by Palehound’s upcoming tour dates.

In a press release Kempner says the song is “about feeling unworthy of love even within a relationship. It’s about years of being conditioned to hate my body and the shock of finding someone who isn’t telling me to change. Choosing to believe the person who believes in you is a wild journey especially when it correlates with ebb and flow of a partnership. The video, directed by Robert Kolodny, is a continuation of the video for ‘Aaron.’ It’s the same characters but in this one I am mask-less and talking my way towards my companion, our shrinking distance represented by a string that ties us together.”

In February, prior to the album’s announcement, Palehound shared the album’s “Killer” (it was one of our Songs of the Week). When the album was announced she shared a video for another song from the album, “Aaron.”

Palehound’s last album was 2017’s A Place I’ll Always Go.

Kempner co-produced Black Friday with Gabe Wax (Beirut, Soccer Mommy). It was recorded at Panoramic House in Stinson Beach, California, mainly tracked live with Kempner and her bandmates Jesse Weiss (drums) and Larz Brogan (bass).

Kempner also had this to say about the album in a press release: “Making music’s always been a therapeutic thing for me-that’s such a big part of the reason why I do it in the first place. What I always want to do with my songs is to help people heal in some way, or come to some new understanding about whatever it is that they’re going through. Even if it’s just hearing a song and feeling less alone than they were before, that would mean so much to me.”
