Molly Nilsson has been sparingly sharing tracks from her forthcoming album, IMAGINATIONS, over the past year: “Think Pink” in the summer and “Let’s Talk About Privileges” in the fall, and today she’s released “Money Never Dreams,” just in time for the winter chill. Coming a day after she responded to the use of her music in a television show associated with the white nationalist movement, the timing works out so that it could be perceived as a subtle commentary on having to negotiate your own ideology with getting paid: “Money doesn’t care about you/ Always going somewhere without or.” Or it could just be a great synth-pop sparkler about capitalism’s depressive stranglehold on us all. Or both! Listen below.
IMAGINATIONS is out next year via Dark Skies Association/Night School Records.
