PUSSY RIOT RELEASES
“LAUGH IT OFF” FT VÉRITÉ & LATASHÁ HERE
ON NEON GOLD RECORDS

Russian protest art collective Pussy Riot’s release “LAUGH IT OFF” featuring New York-based artist VÉRITÉ and multi-dimensional rapper LATASHÁ HERE, the second track from the upcoming project to be released via Neon Gold Records (Charli XCX, MARINA, Christine and the Queens, etc) later this year. Another powerful pop knockout, like “PUNISH” co-written by the Swedish Grammy-nominated artist Tove Lo, who assumes the role of executive producer for the forthcoming project as well.

The song will be made available to NFT collectors as a 150 piece limited edition series via the Sound.xyz platform today at 2 pm PST/5 pm EST. “LAUGH IT OFF” comes complete with a visual by Berlin-based 3D artist Ksti Hu.

Nadya Tolokonnikova elaborates on “Laugh It Off”, released specifically on International Day of Gender Equality: “Women-identified and LGBTQ+ people don’t need to be empowered, we need tools and funds to empower ourselves.”

VÉRITÉ says: “Laugh It Off is such an appropriate title to this song because as women existing in male dominated spaces, we’re constantly expected to be accommodating and deflect strange, presumptuous behavior gracefully and without ruffling any feathers. Collaborating with PussyRiot & Latashá, these unapologetically strong women who don’t give a fuck about playing nice and whose mission is supporting and amplifying female, non-binary and LGBTQ+ voices in music and beyond feels right and I’m stoked for the world to hear it.”

LATASHÁ says:“Big love for VÉRITÉ and Nadya, two of my faves. Really excited to have laced this track with a verse to add to the incredible power that it ignites.”

About the upcoming project, Tove Lo adds:
“Getting to enter Nadya’s world and be a part of this project is my pussy power passion project! She’s an iconic artist with an incredible life story who goes into everything with a bigger purpose. I hope we all get to live in the Pussyverse!”
