Last year, Pussy Riot teamed up with Dorian Electra to appear on the latter's "My Agenda." Now, Electra has returned the favour and hopped on a new Pussy Riot song called "My Agenda," which was produced by Dylan Brady of 100 gecs

In a statement, Pussy Riot's Nadya Tolokonnikova explained that the new single "TOXIC" is "political, because personal is political," adding, "The single reflects on the importance of self-care, cherishing your mental health and staying away from relationships that poison you."

She continued: "A few years ago I went through an emotionally abusive relationship (that ended up being physically abusive, too — I was being held against my will in a house we lived in). The best way to process trauma for me is via creating art, that's why we wrote 'TOXIC' with Dorian and Dylan. Besides music, I use other tools to convince others to put their mental health first, train themselves to recognize emotional violence and leave abusive relationships ASAP."

Electra added, "I'm so honoured to be featured on this track. Nadya is one of my all-time favourite people, friends and collaborators and I've always been so inspired by Pussy Riot's blending of activism and art. This song came together so quickly with Nadya and Dylan in the studio — we knew we had to make something both hella abrasive and cute at the same time."
