The release is accompanied by a cinematic video made in collaboration with Banyan Theatre, Echo Echo Dance Theatre Company and Living Witness Productions.
Revealing the meaning behind the new track, Velvet Alibi’s vocalist and songwriter Anna Nolan says: “On the surface ‘Addicted To You’ is a song about a toxic love relationship, although beneath this guise looms the destructive cyclic nature of addiction in its many forms.”
