Caroline Polachek has released new single ‘Billions’. “The overabundance of this world overwhelms me”, she says. “Sometimes it seems like ultimate tragedy, the earth being pillaged and destroyed for it. Sometimes it seems pre-human, beyond morality, sublime. I don’t pick sides, I just live here, with you. How does it feel, being so rich?”

I am so proud to be the first black female artist to have been honoured, still baby faced, and inspired as hell. Here’s to the next decade of making art and music. Thank you to the heavens and back to everyone who has helped me make my dreams come true”.
