Lydia Loveless - "Wringer"

"Wringer," the latest single from Lydia Loveless, is an interesting listen for me. I wasn't a big fan of her 2016 pop turn on Real, and this new song is definitely her leaning into her pop sensibilities. But I genuinely love "Wringer." It has this interesting sound that's reminding me of early Madonna, back when she still had some rawness to her production. It's also one of the peppiest divorce songs I've ever heard. It still keeps the sadness of a huge break up with lyrics like "How did it come to this / Dividing our possessions," but somehow keeps an upbeat feel. "Wringer" is going to up the intrigue for Loveless's upcoming album, no matter what you think of it.

You can watch the video for "Wringer" below. Daughter, the new album from Lydia Loveless, will be out September 25 on her own Honey, You're Gonna Be Late Records. You can pre-order the album here. For more on Lydia Loveless, check out her website.
