Peach PRC is back with her first new single of the year, a tongue-in-cheek cut titled ‘God Is A Freak’.
Released today (February 4), ‘God Is A Freak’ marks another anthemic, sugary track in Peach’s growing catalogue. Its catchy chorus oozes earworm qualities, as the pop singer quips: “God is a bit of a freak / why’s he watching me getting railed on the couch /staying pure for a wedding / he’s got fucked up priorities.”
Listen to the song below.
“I found it frustrating when I went to a Christian college and sat through testimonials about how the youth leader’s mum prayed for a certain type of carpet for her new house and God rewarded her with it, meanwhile there are children impoverished globally and “God” doesn’t seem to bother,” Peach said in a press statement.
“I also remember purity culture being a big thing. The first time I was ‘slut shamed’ was at 12-years-old inside a church during youth group for the clothes I was wearing.
“This song is for everyone who has felt shamed, dirty, impure, wrong, unloved and unworthy because of beliefs upheld by the church. Whether you are a believer in God or not, you are worthy of feeling liberation.”
Peach leaked part of the song on her TikTok last month, saying she thought her label (Universal/Island) would find it too controversial. In a follow-up teaser for the song, she also formally came out to her fans, writing: “Since this song has been blowing up, I guess now is a good time to tell you all, I’m a lesbian.”
‘Josh’ featured in triple j’s Hottest 100 this year, taking out number 35.
