If music is anything, it's therapy.

Just ask Romy of The xx, whose haunting new single, "Strong," is a soul-stirring ode to resiliency. Produced in collaboration with Fred again.. and prolific record producer Stuart Price, the cathartic track is about learning how to process grief.

It's only the second-ever solo track from Romy, who said "Strong" was inspired in part by the loss of her mother and written to "ultimately find a sense of release in the euphoria of music." The single arrives ahead of her debut studio album, which is still in the works.

Check out the official music video for "Strong" below. The audiovisual was directed by Romy’s wife, filmmaker and photographer Vic Lentaigne.
