Today, Montreal musician Ada Lea dropped the music video for can’t stop me from dying.
The fourth and final single is taken from the upcoming album one hand on the steering wheel the other sewing a garden (So very Fiona Apple like with long titles) which comes out on September 24, 2021 via Saddle Creek and Next Door Records.
Getting this 80s new wave synth pop rock vibe.
About the track:
Throughout the track, there are subtle sonic flourishes that make it especially compelling.
Although other songs feel timeless with a 70s studio sheen, “can’t stop me from dying” sounds completely modern in its use of electronics, sound effects, and pitched vocals.
Its video, directed by Katerine DM, reflects this modern feel, mimicking a Sims character wandering through a town before having a wild, dancing-filled night.
About the song’s origin, Levy explains: “I had just come off a difficult tour and was in a kind of trashy mental state and just couldn’t shake the weird feeling.
I kept imagining this character who dies multiple times throughout the course of a night whenever she makes a mistake, always restarting with a little more clarity than where she began, with the intention of doing things differently the second time around.
These versions learn from past mistakes and the takeaway of ‘next time, I’ll do things differently’ is how you win the game is not using the mistakes as justifications to the mountain of shame with which we often use to torment ourselves.
We’re gonna mess up, we’re gonna hurt people, nothing can stop that from happening and nothing can stop you from dying!”
