This is the follow-up to the leading single Robber and again she is out of her comfort zone and go with a fuller sound with synths, drums and percussions.
Loving this upbeat sound by The Weather Station.

About the song and music video:
Tried To Tell You” is about “reaching out to someone; a specific person, or maybe every person, who is tamping down their wildest and most passionate self in service of some self (and world?) destructive order,” says Lindeman. Sonically, it’s clean and sturdy, with taut percussion and waning Wurlizter. As with the “Robber” video, the “Tried To Tell You” video was also directed by Lindeman and shot behind the house where she grew up. “The video portrays a person who is beset by miracles and visions of beauty, which emanate from inside of and all around him, but rather than reacting with awe or joy, he reacts with annoyance, indifference, and mistrust,” says Lindeman. “We are taught not to see the natural world that we still live in, preferring instead to dwell on the artificial, which is so often a poor substitute for the vibrant real. Flowers really do rise up from mud, and many of us are full of treasures and beauty, but we often discount these things or throw them away.”

“I used to be an actor, now I’m a performer,” Lindeman says. In those roles she often finds herself to be the subject of projection, reflecting back the ideas and emotions of others. In turn, the album cover shows Lindeman laying in the woods, wearing a hand made suit covered in mirrors. Throughout Ignorance, she sings of trying to wear the world as a kind of ill fitting, torn garment, dangerously cold, ‘it does not keep me warm / I cannot ever seem to fasten it’ and of walking the streets in it, so disguised and exposed.
