Purity Ring have covered 1999 Alice Deejay classic, ‘Better Off Alone’, flipping the glossy eurodance original into a more ghostly affair.

The duo released third album ‘WOMB’ back in the midst of the pandemic in April, providing some much-needed calm.

“We have wanted to cover this song for years and it felt like it was time,” Purity Ring say. “It’s been an influence on how we write and feel music since the beginning, and so for all the ways that joy and longing move, the truth is out there.”
