Dorothy shares new single/video ‘Rest in Peace,’ announces headline tour

Dorothy has shared the new single and video “Rest in Peace” from her upcoming album “Gifts from the Holy Ghost,” due in spring 2022 via Roc Nation. Listen to “Rest in Peace” here, and watch the video below.

“‘RIP’ is about breaking free from oppression, burying demons, and reclaiming sovereignty and power,” Dorothy said.

The video was directed by Nick Peterson and edited by Linda Strawberry.

Dorothy also has announced a North American headline tour starting March 21, 2022, in San Diego, California, and ending May 19 in Anaheim, California. Go here for tickets and more information.

Dorothy Martin’s life changed forever when she was forced to face death on her tour bus some three years ago. After her guitar technician had taken an overdose, Dorothy instinctively began praying for his survival. While he may have temporarily died, the technician was miraculously restored back to life. It was this moment that seemed to bring Dorothy to life, too. It was this divine intervention that caused a radical and spiritual awakening in the singer, the result of which can be heard on “Gifts from the Holy Ghost,” Dorothy’s third studio album as frontperson for the pseudonymous, blues-rock band Dorothy.

While the band’s first, irreverently named album, “ROCKISDEAD,” was made on a combination of whiskey and heartbreak—inspiring Rolling Stone to name it one of rock’s most exciting new acts, and JAY-Z to sign it to his label Roc Nation—”Gifts” was built on recovery, health and holiness, in a way that reverses the clichéd “good girl gone bad narrative.”

With the combined powers of Keith Wallen, Jason Hook, Scott Stevens, Phil X, Trevor Lukather, Joel Hamilton and the legendary ear of producer Chris Lord Alge, “Gifts from the Holy Ghost” is made from a musical palette that seems to encompass each of the musician’s influences, as well as many of the essential sounds of rock music’s history—from swampy blues to ‘90s alternative.

“I think this album is going to speak to a lot of people, it’s meant to be healing, unifying, eye-opening, ear-opening, heart-opening and celebratory,” Dorothy said. “I wanted to make the realest album I could make, and I went in with the question does this make me feel alive? Does it make me feel free? If a song didn’t give me chills or make my heart soar, then it didn’t make the cut.”
