Backxwash has shared a new single called “Rosemary’s Revenge.”
Her eerie new single comes in celebration of Halloween. The track comes packed with wailing guitars and ominous howls. “Rosemary’s Revenge” follows the recent Backxwash album, I Lie Here Buried With My Rings And My Dresses.
“I have been really interested in the story of this Zambian forklore story about Rosemary so I decided to write her a soundtrack,” Backxwash writes on Twitter. “This is probably the most nu metal I have ever sounded lol.”

I Lie Here Buried serves as the follow-up to Backxwash’s Polaris Music Prize-winning sophomore album, God Has Nothing to Do with This Leave Him Out of It. It features some big-name guests like Nowhere2Run, clipping., Sad13, Lauren Bousfield, Devi McCallion, and Ada Rook.
“This album is less metal and more industrial so very excited for y’all to listen,” Backxwash tweeted of the collection.
The new album is “a horror anthology,” Backxwash explained at a press conference after her Polaris win. “Each track is going to depict different characters, inspired by real characters in my life. I’m producing it all. It’s going to be gothic, there’s going to be tribal chants in there as well. There’s going to be a few rock samples.”
