- READ MORE: The NME Big Read – Poppy: Human After All
The Los Angeles band, who released their fifth album ‘Disco4: Part 1’ in 2020, previewed the track on social media earlier this week, sharing a 13-second teaser.
The five-minute song is a blast of industrial rock and shoegaze, set against Poppy’s floating vocals.

The new song comes after HEALTH joined forces with Deftones frontman Chino Moreno on a track called ‘ANTI-LIFE’ over the summer. The collaboration was recorded for DC‘s ‘Dark Nights: Death Metal Soundtrack’.
Back in May, the band teamed up with Nine Inch Nails for ‘Isn’t Everyone’. NIN’s Trent Reznor was on mixing duties for the song, which marked the first time the two groups had worked together.
Poppy, meanwhile, released her debut album ‘Flux’ last month. In a four-star review of the album, NME wrote: “Ultimately ‘Flux’ feels like a record about holding clear boundaries, constantly shifting in the face of set expectations, and following your creative gut instead.”
In September, the Boston artist launched Roblox’s new ‘Listening Parties’ feature, making her latest studio effort available through “all of the [Roblox] experiences” and participating in a Q&A on the platform.
