"Lilith" is a song by PLEXXAGLASS that was produced by Mike Shinoda as a part of his ShinodaProduceMe initiative.

Background

The song was produced by Mike on Twitch on March 3, 2021. PLEXXAGLASS talked about the process and how the collaboration came out on an interview with Hollywood Life[1]: "I wrote 'Lilith' probably over 2 years ago at this point— Like most folks with reproductive parts, black or brown skin, and/or identifying somewhere within the LGBTQIA+ community, Donald Trump's presidency was eye-opening in the worst way possible. It told us, with certainty, that there's half this country that hates us. It brought out a lot more anger in my writing.

The song's intro was actually spurned by a fascinating character study that Handmaid's Tale provided within its third season— what happens when the oppressor starts to be affected by the oppression?

'Where is your God, knowing what you know now?' Where is your God now that your body is being controlled too? Where is your God now that people you love are being harmed? Is your God really worth all of this pain? Is any God or ideology worth this much pain? I think those questions are why people leave organized religion."

Talking about Mike she said: "Mike is truly such a brilliant artist, and I feel so lucky to be able to say I’ve worked with him. What he brought to this song is everything I could’ve dreamt it would sound like. He really just got what I was trying to do, and it doesn’t always happen like that. 12-year-old Alexxa probably would’ve shat themselves if they knew I’d eventually make a song with Mike freaking Shinoda."

Release

Announced on April 29, 2021, the song premiered on Hollywood Life the day before its release, scheduled for May 7, 2021.
