Girlpool has shared a new track "Picturesong," made with contributions from Dev Hynes a.k.a. Blood Orange. Heartache permeates through the song's amorous atmosphere, a rich confluence of bedroom pop, shredding, and prom ballad synths from Hynes, who also handles backing vocals, guitars, and mixing.


Here's a statement from Girlpool on their new track: "'Picturesong' is a word invented to explore what we create in each other when we want to feel deep love because of loneliness or otherwise, and brings into question the reality and delusion of the things we feel.” Hynes also shared his appreciation for the group, “I’m such a fan of Girlpool, and loved working with them. Their harmonies are some of my favourites that are out there.”
