Empress Of—aka Lorely Rodriguez—has announced her third album I’m Your Empress Of, with the club-leaning lead single, “Give Me Another Chance.”
In the accompanying video, directed by Alexis Gómez, Rodriguez performs the hypnotic song in the hallways of a school, which are lit by pulsating neon lights. “I can be loving, I can forgive / I don’t wanna lose you, I know I’ll still live / Somebody told me you’ve got another / I’m asking you baby, choose me over her,” she sings.
I’m Your Empress Of is the follow-up to 2018’s Us, and was mostly written and produced by Rodriguez herself. The record also includes songs penned by Jim E-Stack and Mikey Freedom Hart, “U Give it Up” and “Hold Me Like Water,” respectively.
“This record wasn’t written in a remote location,” Rodriguez shared in a statement. “It was written in my small studio in Highland Park, Los Angeles over two months in between touring the world. […] It’s called I’m Your Empress Of because I’ve always felt that once a song is done, and the emotion is there and it’s not inside me anymore, it belongs to the world.”
I’m Your Empress Of arrives April 3 via Terrible Records. Watch the video for“Give Me Another Chance” below:
