Dorothy returns today with her powerful, soul-baring new single, “What’s Coming To Me.” The swampy blues canticle recounts her time spent away since her lauded last record, during which she re-evaluated herself and found strength in her rock and roll roots. The soulful revelation sung through Dorothy’s momentous voice “is a story about casting out a demon and getting redeemed — a metaphor for depression or addiction,” she reveals. “I think it’s something we can all relate to. Everyone’s struggling with something.”
Directed by frequent Smashing Pumpkins collaborator and visual artist Linda Strawberry, the bold video for “What’s Coming To Me” features spiritual iconography, striking costumes and a full-on exorcism — a moving depiction that foreshadows a new and defiant era for the songstress.
“What’s Coming To Me” is available today across all digital retailers on Roc Nation. The track is expected to appear on Dorothy’s upcoming album, Gifts From The Holy Ghost, which is tentatively due later this year.
