Jessica Simpson says new song about addiction ‘healed’ her


Jessica Simpson’s return to the music scene came complete with a unique rendition of one of her favorite songs — showing a stripped-down, vulnerable version of the singer not previously seen in her bubbly pop singles.

In a cover of “Particles” by Nothing But Thieves, she sings, “Baby, tell me if I’m being strange, and if I need to rearrange my particles, I will for you, my particles, I will for you.”

In the accompanying music video, the 41-year-old sits alone in a room lit with flickering candles amongst stained glass, singing into a microphone.

“The whole idea of music heals is a very real statement to me,” she wrote in the description of the video. “This song healed a broken piece of me.”

The song comes after cryptically alluding to the release on Twitter, which followed a more serious thread of tweets about her past experience with addiction.

On Nov. 1, Simpson shared a tweet, along with a photo, that read, “This person in the early morning of Nov 1, 2017, is an unrecognizable version of myself. I had so much self-discovery to unlock and explore.”

She followed up with a series of posts discussing her addiction to pills and alcohol, blaming a lack of self-love and self-respect for her behavior.

She opened up about her addiction last year in her memoir “Open Book,” in which she details her struggle with addiction as a way to cope with trauma.

The memoir release also came with six songs from Simpson, the last time anyone heard a musical peep from the singer. Before that, her last full-length album was more than a decade ago.

“Particles,” she said, saved her from her addiction, which she discussed in her memoir and on social media.

Now, though, she’s back and better than ever, saying “Particles” is a song that saved her when she was in that darker place.
