Ahead of the release of her upcoming fifth album Engine Of Hell (due out on November 5 via Sargent House), Emma Ruth Rundle has shared a new single and video, Blooms Of Oblivion.

Speaking specifically about the video – which Emma co-directed with John Bradburn – the musician says, "In the video I use an oversized coat to represent an oversized and burdening experience for the little girl. The feeling of being free falling in chaos. Having no control over your circumstances.

"The song and video describe the feelings I had as a little girl and how that’s shaped who I have become – negotiating with my past and waking to the woman I strive to become through self-love, self parenting and forgiveness and the transformation that it can bring."
