Laura Jane Grace is previewing her next album with a new single, the acoustic-powered folk/punk song “Dysphoria Hoodie.” Further details about the album have yet to be announced, although it will be released on Polyvinyl at some future point.
“This is a song about gender dysphoria and your favorite hooded sweatshirt,” Grace says of the single, which she has frequently performed live since late 2021. “Any trans person out there knows what a dysphoria hoodie is — it’s the hoodie you wear when feeling low and dysphoric and you don’t want the world reading your gender. Hide your body shape, hide your head, disappear as much as you can. Wrap yourself up in it like a blanket anywhere you go. Make your flesh become cotton. Instant protection from the outside world. My dysphoria hoodie happens to be an Adidas hoodie, so yes, this is in fact really just a tribute song to my favorite Adidas hoodie.”
