Ian Sweet, the project the Los Angeles–based artist Jillian Medford, has released the new Star Stuff EP. In addition to the previously released track “Fight,” it includes the new single “Die a Million Times.” Watch the video for the track, and listen to the full EP, below.
“‘Die a Million Times’ is about being stuck in a negative thought loop that you know you could escape from if you really tried but you’re not willing to let go yet,” Medford said in a statement. “A thought loop that is so painful and destructive to your brain but yet you want to keep replaying certain memories over and over. I was living in a fantasy world about a relationship that didn’t end up working out and kept inviting in the thoughts and memories that I knew would continue to destroy me but I wasn’t ready to move on from them yet in order to help myself.”
