“I want young men and women to understand that this kind of treatment of others can happen where it might be least expected.”

Alice Glass has has released her first post-Crystal Castles music and shared details on Twitter of the “abusive relationship” that preceded it.

“Years ago I began the process of trying to remove myself from an abusive relationship that started when I was a teenager,” she wrote in a post on Twitter. “When I couldn’t take it anymore and I wanted to end the relationship I was threatened, then I was told I was loved, then the cycle would begin again.”

“I want young men and women to understand that this kind of treatment of others can happen where it might be least expected.”

Glass left Crystal Castles last year, writing: “My art and my self-expression in any form has always been an attempt towards sincerity, honesty, and empathy for others. For a multitude of reasons both professional and personal I no longer feel that this is possible within CC.”

Streaming below, Glass’ solo debut ‘Stillbirth’ was written together with Jupiter Keyes, and is louder, angrier and more personal than anything she did as part of Crystal Castles.

The self-released single will be available to buy and stream from July 18, and all proceeds will go to organizations that help survivors of domestic abuse, sexual violence and incest. If you want to donate to the cause directly, Glass suggests giving money to RAINN.

You can read the full statement from Glass below, which also teases a “sister” song to ‘Stillbirth’, described as a “lullaby”.
