Gifted multi-hyphenate Kat Von D shares vulnerable synthwave slow jam ‘I Am Nothing,’ the second track from her forthcoming debut album, ‘Love Made Me Do It,’ due August 27th and available for pre-order now. The pre-order of ‘Love Made Me Do It’ includes limited edition signed red vinyl, red cassettes, CD digipack, hoodies with Kat’s signature star face tattoos on the hood, custom sketchbooks, and much more. Other limited edition color vinyl variants are also available for retail.
‘Love Made Me Do It’ sits at the core of Kat’s universe, proving that music is her first and strongest passion. Having been a classically trained pianist since her youth with a deep appreciation for music of all genres, Kat poured her soul into this long-awaited full-length debut album. The project features collaborators including Dave Grohl, Linda Perry, Dave Sitek (TV On The Radio), Peter Murphy (Bauhaus), Danny Lohner (Nine Inch Nails), Ladyhawke, and Charo.
Produced by Kat with the help of her band, ‘I Am Nothing’ sees the talented artist at her most intimate and vulnerable, her fragile timbre coasts over sparse production and a dreamy beat before layers of synths open into a lush chorus. It’s the ultimate 3am dance floor synthwave slow jam for an Anti-prom that never happened but all alternative teens have dreamed about since the ‘80s. A sad bop for goths’ broken hearts that will end up in their older sister’s pop playlist.
“I wrote the song for all of those who’ve ever felt not good enough, and Lord knows I’ve been there” she goes on. “I wrote it during a time where I was lost in someone, but more importantly lost myself along the way, and I think that’s something many can relate to.” Kat contemplates: “wanting to be good enough for someone so badly, and somehow not measuring up.” “I believe there’s strength in vulnerability, but this song begs the listener of how much one’s willingness to endure the things they can’t have” she enthuses.
