GAYLE‘s Grammy nomination for Song of the Year for “abcdefu” proved that plenty of people like her, but her first new music of 2023 is a song called “everybody hates me.”

The song is out now, and GAYLE says it was inspired by a real-life experience. “There was a point in my life where I felt like I wasn’t getting respected and everything i was doing was being torn apart,” she says in a statement.

“I honestly felt like everybody hated me,” she adds. “Instead of drowning in it I felt empowered by it because i realized I didn’t have to do anything for anybody else. Because when everyone hates you, you may as well like yourself and do what you want.”

“Life’s a b***h and I’m not surprised/ If you read my mind, you’d probably cry/ I do it myself all the time,” she sings in the punk-flavored track. “Life’s a b***h and she’s cool with me/ I’ll let it be, hard world to please/ I live my life like everybody hates me.”

The song is GAYLE’s first release since her 2022 EP a study of the human experience volume two and a half, which came out in October. She kicks off her opening slot on Taylor Swift‘s Era Tour next Friday in Glendale, Arizona.
