Sharon Needles Talks New Album 'Battle Axe' & Performs New Songs
Just in time for Halloween, spook queen Sharon Needles is back with her third studio album, Battle Axe. The winner of RuPaul’s Drag Race season 4 stopped by Billboard to talk about the new record, pop culture and more.
“If you are looking for a fancy answer about what this shit means, you’re not gonna get it. Because Battle Axe -- they’re just fucking songs,” Needles explained. “I didn’t want to pour my heart out anymore. I didn’t want to hurt on stage every night. I didn’t want to be reminded of these things. I just wanted to write songs about shit I liked to talk about: scary shit and gross shit -- and actual shit, I have a song called ‘Dirty Diaper.’”
She also performed two tracks from the album, “Black Licorice” and “Andy Warhol Is Dead.” Watch video of her performance, and stream Battle Axe below.
