Earlier this month, we learned that PVRIS would be delaying their album Use Me until July 10. But, frontwoman Lynn Gunn also announced that she was upset with that decision and would do whatever it took to get new music to her listeners. Well, Gunn came through and we received a new PVRIS track and visual today (April 24).

The new song is called “Gimme A Minute” and it absolutely rips.

Use Me is PVRIS’ third studio album and was originally slated to release on May 1. Unfortunately, that was pushed back “Due to circumstances beyond [PVRIS’] control.”

Gunn took to her social media to promise that she would get new music to her fans even if she had to go rogue saying “I think right now is a time where everyone could use a little music to light up the darkness a bit…” 

Previously, PVRIS released “Dead Weight” with Gunn saying she’s finally allowing herself to take credit where credit is due.

Now, we have a new PVRIS song and it surely does not disappoint. The ethos and meaning of the song go a bit deeper than just needing a minute to relax. Gunn explains that aside from the lyrics, the way “Gimme A Minute” sounds conveys the ideas behind it. 

“The last two years have been a lot to process – I was navigating health issues while trying to make this album in a timely manner. The pacing and dynamic of the song feels similar to when your mind starts to spiral on something, the quiet start slowly stirring and building eventually landing into chaos.”

As you can tell, Gunn is very excited about the release.

 

The video is absolutely another case entirely. It’s new, fun and exciting. It’s strange, opulent and dynamically vibrant. At times we see metallic figures singing the lyrics, Gunn shreds a guitar inside an open mouth, there’s a castle in the distance with a ring behind it that oddly looks like the Disney logo. It is sure to keep you entertained throughout.

Here’s a bit of a teaser before the full video, courtesy of Lynn Gunn.

“Gimme A Minute” Lyrics

Wide awake
Just cut the head off of a snake
Wanted venom got a taste
You’ll never know how much it takes
All the pain fade away
Where’d it go?
Someone just ripped out my throat
Told me to sing while I was choked
Wish I could tell you but I won’t
You should know but you don’t

A year of lows spent so high
Feeling like I’m out of time
Inner peace is hard to find
They’re asking why I think I’m losing my mind

Gimme a minute
Gimme a minute
thought I got through it
maybe I didn’t
Thought it was over
Maybe it isn’t
Just gimme a minute
gimme a minute

Break a heart
The whole body falls apart
You will never know how far
I came broken from the start
You should know
But you don’t

A year of lows spent so high
Feeling like I could die
Inner peace is hard to buy
They’re asking why I think I’m losing my mind

Gimme a minute
Gimme a minute
thought I got through it
maybe I didn’t
Thought it was over
Maybe it isn’t
Just gimme a minute
gimme a minute

A year of lows spent so high
Feeling like I could die
Inner peace is hard to buy
They’re asking why I think I’m losing my mind

PVRIS’ Use Me is releasing on July 10 and can be preordered here. Until then, stay tuned because we’re almost certain we’ll have some new PVRIS material before then.
