The track, which comes from Ellis’ forthcoming EP, nothing is sacred anymore, sees Ellis (a.k.a. Hamilton’s Linnea Siggelkow) joining forces with her partner Chastity (a.k.a. Whitby’s Brandon Williams). “hell” sees the pair singing of the afterlife, as Ellis reflects on her religious upbringing.
“What happens to us when we die? Obviously I don’t know for sure but I think the concept of hell in a traditional sense is very strange,” Siggelkow explains. “Thinking about it as a place that exists in the afterlife feels like it discounts all the real and shitty things that people endure in this lifetime. Hell exists on earth, we see it all the time. I like to think that death isn’t the gateway to hell, it’s some kind of freedom from it.”

The gloomy tune from Ellis and Chastity revolves around a sparse, eerie instrumental line that allows Siggelkow and Williams’ vocals to truly shine. The accompanying video for the track is packed with a sort of painful nostalgia, as Ellis pulls a wagon around rural roads beneath gritty film effects.
nothing is sacred anymore is out tomorrow, June 25th. It marks her first new release since her debut album, Born Again. The intimate collection sees Ellis taking complete control, working as a co-producer across its 4 tracks.
“I was very intentional throughout my process in a way I hadn’t been able to be before, especially in choosing who to work with, and this unlocked some of the most special collaborative experiences I’ve ever been a part of,” Ellis says.
