Last week, Poppy unveiled the tracklist for her highly-anticipated Choke EP and with it, dropped the title track to give fans a taste of the record.
The track “Choke” has some serious dark lyrics, but is a mix of both Poppy’s pop and metal sides.
“Help, I’m drowning/There’s nobody around me/I need someone to save me/Can you come and take me?” Poppy starts the track off.
You can listen to “Choke” below.
Poppy’s upcoming Choke EP is also currently available for preorders here. You can see the full tracklist below.
- “Scary Mask” (feat. FEVER 333)
- “The Holy Mountain”
From the record, Poppy’s also already dropped “Scary Mask” and “Voicemail.” You can listen to both of those songs below.
She also recently opened up in an interview about her switch to heavier music and made some comments about Marilyn Manson and her cult.
She first started talking on the Build show about her music being much heavier.
“When I was making pop music, it was harder,” she said. “But now after my song ‘X,’ I think it’s easier to make music.”
She said she likes heavier music because “you can hide meaning within it.”
Poppy then went into discussing her relationship with Manson, which she clarified was solely professional and not romantic. She was asked if Manson was a part of her cult, and was vague with her response.
“I don’t know you have to ask him,” she said.
