Why not look forward to May and the release of a new album by PVRIS?

The album “Use Me” is the highly-anticipated third studio album, and it’s out on May 1 on Reprise / Warner Records .

A spokesman said: “Use Me finds frontwoman , multi-instrumentalist, songwriter and producer Lynn Gunn stepping into a new chapter as she owns her role as PVRIS’ leader and sole architect.

“The result is a collection of alt-pop conjurations of glitchy beat-craft, airy guitars, and spell-binding vocals.”

The spokesman added: “The album’s first track ‘Dead Weight’ today premiered as Annie Mac’s Hottest Record in the World on Radio 1.”

Lynn added: “Dead Weight is about being a people pleaser, holding others up and never asking for anything back. Quite often that can be taken advantage of and it can be hard to set “no”/set boundaries. This feels amplified, especially as a woman. This song is about stepping into my power as a woman, shedding old skin and taking nurturing/caretaker feminine nature and turning it into a super power.”

A newfound sense of freedom lies at the core of ‘Use Me’ . For years, Lynn remained in the background, too shy to take all of the credit for the vision of PVRIS and her role in the songwriting, presentation, much of the production, merch and visual concepts. At last, she is ready to shine a light on who she is and what she does — like she should’ve a long time ago.

“ I allowed myself to support a narrative,” Lynn confesses. “I didn’t really have a role model for this. Coming from a ‘band culture,’ it’s about how the group is always greater than the sum of its parts, and you’re not supposed to take credit, even if you do everything. There’s no template or role model for really owning it as a woman.”
