Backxwash has shared a new song called “Thumbs Down (Not I)” with Dreamcrusher. It’s the 33rd entry in the 2021 Adult Swim Singles program. Check it out below.

In July, Backxwash released I LIE HERE BURIED WITH MY RINGS AND MY DRESSES, the followup to her Polaris Prize-winning 2020 LP God Has Nothing to Do With This Leave Him Out Of It. The LP featured production from Clipping and a feature from Sad13. Of the new single, Backxwash said in a statement:

“This was an amazing opportunity to collaborate with one of the artists I admire and I am happy Adult Swim gave me that opportunity. I think sonically it is the perfect marriage of our styles and that is what collaboration should be all about. Very happy with how this came out.”

Dreamcrusher added: 

“I wrote the lyrics with the thought of what a ‘rebel’ is and what it means, and if that meaning has changed. I personally think rebellion is being yourself despite the world and how it treats you. I often think about the crossroads and thin lines between integrity and survival, and these days, with everything being so chaotic (especially for marginalized communities and independent artists). I honestly don’t give a fuck anymore. I just want to create work that I’m proud of, put it out to the world, and eat the fruits of my labor.”

Dreamcrusher plans to drop several solo releases in 2022 in addition to Centennial Gardens, a forthcoming collaboration with King Vision Ultra. 

Check out “An Evening with Dreamcrusher” on the Pitch.
