Alice Glass is back! After releasing her Exclaim!-favourite debut solo album PREY//IV in 2022, the hyperpop-industrial vet has returned with a cover of Smashing Pumpkins' post-Gish single "Drown."

Joining forces with her long-time collaborator, producer Jupiter Keyes, the track is the first in a promise of "a new project due this summer."

Alice Glass shared the following of her transformative cover, which balances sparkling production with scattershot down-pitched, witch house-y vocals:

I believe in the power of art to transcend betrayal and disappointment. "Drown" is not just a cover; it's a testament to resilience and artistic integrity. This track was created after we were asked to be a part of an exciting compilation that ultimately didn't end up happening. But I didn't want that to stop us from sharing our interpretation of this iconic Smashing Pumpkins track. This release is a declaration of autonomy and a reminder that true artistry cannot be stifled by broken promises.
