    Rosalía has released a new song, “Dolerme,” which translates to “hurt me” in English.

    This emotive track, driven by acoustic guitar riffs, follows the Spanish flamenco pop star’s January release, “Juro Que.” Both songs showcase a shift away from both the intricate sonics of Rosalía’s breakout debut El Mal Querer, and the party-starting urbano of her 2019 singles.

    Besides dropping “Dolerme,” Rosalía addressed her fans on Instagram, opening up about the effect coronavirus quarantine was having on her.

    She wrote (as translated by Remezcla): “Many of us are in quarantine and many are taking risks to help others outside of home. I am in quarantine and I have lost track of time a bit because I decided that I was not going to think about it too much and that instead I was going to put my energy and my heart into doing something for others, in my own way.”

    “I know that what I do as an artist may seem expendable, for some it will be, but for me being able to make music is mental health,” she added. “This song is called ‘Dolerme’ and I hope it makes you feel a little better like it did to me when I made it… Please take care of yourselves and take care of all those around you, with all my love.”
