Lowell is back with a new release, but it marks a bit of a change for the Toronto artist. She this time is giving us songs made for a new horror flick.

Today Lowell announced she's releasing her music for the upcoming film Bloodthirsty. Her release will be a four-track EP, due out via Art & Crafts on April 23 — the same day as the film.

Right now, you can hear Lowell's "Bloodthirsty" from the EP below.

According to a press release, the film Bloodthirsty "follows a young indie singer who finds herself turning into a werewolf under the pressure of recording her anticipated second album. In addition to being written by the mother-daughter duo of producer Wendy Hill-Tout and singer-songwriter Lowell, the all-women creative team includes director Amelia Moses, lead actor Lauren Beatty and composer Michelle Osis."

In a statement, Lowell herself said:

The single from the film is a '90s-influenced grungy little tune that I wrote specifically with the movie in mind. Cinematically, we heavily referenced '90s classics like Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Bram Stoker's Dracula. The music needed to feel both nostalgic and contemporary at the same time so I did my best to capture the chords and essence of 90s grunge while still maintaining the lyrical intimacy of modern times. The '90s references also went along well with the feminist, LGBTQ positive undertones of the film. I grew up on Riot Grrl and Courtney Love and have always admired their willingness to be raucous and speak out, so it felt sonically suitable for a queer positive film made by a bunch of bad ass women.

Hear "Bloodthirsty" below, where you can also find the movie's trailer.

Lowell's last album was 2018's Lone Wolf.
