Singer/songwriter Elle Varner will release her second album, 4 Letter Word, via RCA later this fall. Today she’s sharing a new video for a show-stopping album cut that’s been floating around the internet since spring, called “F**ck It All.” The sing-through-that-bullshit ballad was produced by duo Pop & Oak, and “is an exploration into the darker side of my mind,” Varner said in an email. “The most haunting thing about the tune for me is that I never break from the light, airy, melancholic melody until the very end. It was a challenge as a writer and singer to stay on one melody and chorus lyric—“fuck it all”—and let only the verse lyrics grow in intensity.” Inspired by heartbreak, Varner’s fuck it applies wherever you need it: “When you're counting the hours at your job, making a change in your life big or small, or are simply ready to throw up your hands and accept what is happening at that moment, maybe there is something you need to let go of. I certainly did so myself.” Yes she did. *clap emoji*
