Pussy Riot collaborate with VÉRITÉ, LATASHÁ on powerful new single ‘Laugh It Off’

Russian protest art collective Pussy Riot have collaborated with VÉRITÉ and LATASHÁ on their new single, “Laugh It Off.”

The song comes from Pussy Riot’s forthcoming project, which will be out on Neon Gold Records later this year. “Laugh It Off” is a power-pop anthem, which arrives on the heels of International Day of Gender Equality. Alongside the track, Pussy Riot shared a visual from Berlin-based 3D artist Ksti Hu.

“Women-identified and LGBTQ+ people don’t need to be empowered, we need tools and funds to empower ourselves,” Pussy Riot’s Nadya Tolokonnikova explains.

“‘Laugh It Off’ is such an appropriate title to this song because as women existing in male dominated spaces, we’re constantly expected to be accommodating and deflect strange, presumptuous behaviour gracefully and without ruffling any feathers,” VÉRITÉ says. “Collaborating with Pussy Riot & Latashá, these unapologetically strong women who don’t give a fuck about playing nice and who’s mission is supporting and amplifying female, non-binary and LGBTQ+ voices in music and beyond feels right and I’m stoked for the world to hear it.”

“Big love for VÉRITÉ and Nadya, two fo my faves,” LATASHÁ adds of the track. “Really excited to have laced this track with a verse to add to the incredible power that it ignites.”

In addition to “Laugh It Off,” Pussy Riot’s forthcoming project also features the previously released “PUNISH.” Much like the rest of the collection, both tracks were produced by Tove Lo.
