LOUISE DISTRAS has unveiled a video for her new single ‘Aileen’.

The single, which explores the dark story of ‘America’s first female serial killer’ Aileen Wuornos, is Distras’ first new material since her critically acclaimed 2013 debut album Dreams From The Factory Floor. It was prooduced by Dreams… producer Steve Whale and mixed by Ross Petersen (BRUCE SPRINGSTEEN, THE VAMPS).

Says Distras of ‘Aileen’, “One night after a show I watched the Nick Broomfield documentary Selling of a Serial Killer, which is about ‘America’s first female serial killer’, Aileen Wuornos. As someone who has experienced homelessness and sexual assault, Aileen’s story hit me pretty hard but left me feeling inspired to share it through my music. The film also left me with my own questions about rape culture and the idea of nature vs nurture, so I decided to make my own DIY film that explores the lyrical content of the single. It’s called Real Outlaw – A Commentary on Rape Culture and the Riot Grrrl Movement and it’s available via scanning a QR code that’s printed on the back of the CD and also on tour posters across the UK.”

‘Aileen’ and its accompanying film will be released worldwide on 30 September 2016 digitally via iTunes and Amazon, or CD via Louise’s official website.
