Song of the Day: K.Flay – “Blood in the Cut”

This track from Illinois singer Kristine Flaherty a.k.a. K.Flay was first a part of her 2016 EP Crush Me, then was included on her 2017 album Every Where Is Some Where. It gained popularity as part of the soundtrack to the movie xXx: Return of Xander Cage and now has 11.4 million views and counting on YouTube. “‘Blood in the Cut’ started as a breakup anthem,” Flaherty told iHeart Radio. “I wrote the lyrics and the riff in 20 minutes, and I was actually at home for Christmas, so I was in my parents’ basement doing that. I was in a somewhat dark emotional place. I wrote that, and I immediately felt filled with this vigor that I had previously been missing. And then producing the song, just embracing that spirit of release in the chorus.”
