Vyva Melinkolya has released a new track, ‘222’, which features backing vocals from Hayden Anhedonia aka Ethel Cain. It’s the third and final single from her upcoming album Unbecoming, which comes out November 9 and includes previous cuts ‘Doomer GF Song’ (featuring Midwife) and ‘I-65’. Give it a listen below.
“One meaning of the number 222 is alignment, finding oneself,” Vyva Melinkolya, aka Angel Diaz, explained in a press release. “The song is about healing, repairing the mind and body piece by piece. It’s about choosing strength over trepidation, retribution over surrender. In late 2021, I sent Hayden a video of myself playing lapsteel guitar, and we quickly started talking about our ideas, and maybe working together. When I showed her the demos for ‘Unbecoming’, she asked if she could sing backing vocals on ‘222’, and I’ve never said yes more quickly. Around the same time, she asked me to contribute some parts for her album Preacher’s Daughter, and my lapsteel track for ‘House In Nebraska’ and her vocals for ‘222’ were recorded just days apart in her Alabama home.”
