070 Shake released her highly anticipated album, You Can’t Kill Me, full of various themes, such as complicated connections, emotional investment, codependency and withdrawal.

You Can’t Kill Me is an extension of Shake’s debut album, Modus Vivendi, which dropped in 2020. The New Jersey native continues to question her surroundings but on a much deeper level.

“We’re so attached to this physical world, it makes us more susceptible to being hurt. You can’t kill me because I’m more than my body,” Shake said in a press release. “With each album, it’s like you’re being revealed more and more. You Can’t Kill Me shows how dedicated I am to being free within music … Feeling is the biggest ingredient of my music.”

The new LP consists of 14 tracks, one of them, “Body,” features Christine and the Queens. You Can’t Kill Me, which was executive produced by Shake and Dave Hamelin and mixed and mastered by Mike Dean, further explores Shake’s signature synth sound. “Wine & Spirits” — an acoustic guitar-led track — allows listeners to really indulge in Shake’s autotune, which she knows how to use to her advantage. Additionally, it can be considered one of her most vulnerable tracks with lyrics as follows: “We’ll be the fault of our demise/ Premeditated suicide/ The media will turn us against each other/ The devil is out workin’ undercover.”

Other tracks, like “Vibrations” and “Cocoon,” offer more of an upbeat melody. Meanwhile, “Medicine” is gritty and dark, as also seen in the song’s music video, which she dropped along with the album.

Listen to You Can’t Kill Me, available on all streaming platforms, and watch the music video for “Medicine” below.
