New Xiu Xiu : 'Dear God, I Hate Myself'

Xiu Xiu's new album Dear God, I Hate Myself is probably going to be our favorite album of the year and now, you can download the title track from the album over at the RCRD LBL site. Jamie Stewart had this to say about the song :
“The title came from a night a literally being on my knees and speaking these words in a prayer to God. It is about the tension between feeling hopeless but also feeling as if spiritual love is possible and there for you if you want it. The drum programming is a result of 1,000 hours of tiny, tiny edits and ruminations. However, the lyrics in a rare, present instance came all at once in about five minutes.”
