Montreal’s Ada Lea (the moniker of Alexandra Levy) has shared new single “hurt,” her first new piece of music since 2020’s woman, here EP.

Slowly building through chugging guitars and Lea’s tight-knit vocal style, the track has pain at its core. “Somebody hurt me bad / Now i’m stuck in a rut / Now I don’t know my body” sings Levy as the track rises through devastating symphonies that wash over like a wave of cathartic despair.

“I wanted to find a way to communicate complicated feelings using the simplest language possible,” says Levy about the new single. “I came with a narrative and removed almost every detail, so as not to obfuscate the feeling – but left it open in terms of a resolution: was this hurt necessarily a bad thing?”
