Lola Blanc’s new single, “Trust Me” is out on August 8, 2023 on We Are: The Guard, available everywhere music is streamed or sold. 


Lola Blanc is a “ridiculously multi-talented”* creator across the mediums of music, film and podcasting whose music has over 200 million+ total streams, 570,000 monthly Spotify listeners, and previous features in Billboard, i-D, L’Officiel, Refinery29, MTV, V Magazine, Glamour, Fuse, Earmilk, Popcrush and several official Spotify playlists.


The release of the “Trust Me” single will be followed by a companion short film/music video due out early fall 2023, directed by Blanc who is also a filmmaker. Her latest film, Pruning starring Madeline Brewer (Handmaid’s Tale), has been sweeping the festival circuit screening at Palm Springs, Fantasia and the Oscar-qualifying festival, Hollyshorts


In addition to her musical and film careers, Lola Blanc co-hosts a wildly popular podcast about cults and the dangerous and intoxicating psychology of extreme belief. The podcast shares the title of her upcoming single, TRUST ME. She’s in fact a trusted pundit on the subject in the upcoming Netflix docuseries, How To Become a Cult Leader. 


Lola Blanc statement on the upcoming single, “Trust Me”:


“Trust Me” is a song about anxiety. I wrote it after I'd had my first panic attack and went through a period of severe anxiety--anxiety about anxiety--that kind of came out of nowhere, and eventually led to me getting treated for OCD. And while I was still learning the skills in therapy, I was struggling with which thoughts and feelings were "real" and which ones were my anxiety misfiring, and I was just exhausted and feeling foggy all the time, which I now know is just derealization. But it really felt like I was broken. Like my body had betrayed me. So the song came when I'd started doing a lot of work on accepting some uncertainty, and becoming okay with the idea that I wasn't always going to do it right, shit was just gonna feel weird sometimes, and I needed to build trust in myself, trust that I could handle it, even if I did my recovery "wrong." Even if my worst case scenario happened. The song was basically a pep talk to myself that I could do this, and I was gonna be okay.
