LISTEN: Aimee Mann Shares New Track “Burn It Out” Off ‘Queens of the Summer Hotel”

Aimee Mann has debuted her new track “Burn It Out,” the second song to be revealed from her highly anticipated new album, Queens of The Summer Hotel, set for release on November 5 via her own SuperEgo Records. Check out the track below…

“In this song, a character who has set herself on fire ruminates on whether she had tried to banish the ghosts of trauma though one drastic, self-destructive act,” says Mann.

Mann started developing the new music in 2018 when she agreed to write songs for a stage adaptation of Girl, InterruptedSusannah Kaysen’s memoir about her psychiatric hospitalization in the late 1960s. It was material that Mann understood well, having had her own struggles with mental illness. The resulting music comes together in Queens of The Summer Hotel.

The album consists of a song cycle constructed from music that Mann wrote for the show, sung by Mann and orchestrated with her longtime collaborator Paul Bryan, using strings and woodwinds in a nod to the project’s theatrical origins.
