Noga has also shared the album’s new single, ‘Pity’. The political pop banger is again accompanied by another stylish video from Zhang + Knight.  

In a statement, she said that the track was inspired by a sexual assault case. “What made it even more alarming and upsetting for me was the fact that it was documented by several different people who were there when it happened” she said. “People stood by and willingly chose to film on their smartphones and then upload the videos and share them online. The presence of cameras and the violation of the victim’s rights and respect was completely disregarded beyond measure.”
