Grrrl Like was released in 2018, accompanied by a video directed by the artist themselves which you can view below.
Dickinson was created, written and executively produced by Alena Smith, and follows the rebellious young poet as she breaks down societal constraints.
“She really was a voice outside of her time,” Smith told EW. “She was a modern consciousness trapped in a pre-modern era. She had a lot of constraints on her, but within those constraints took the most agency that she could and rebelled in her own small way. That legacy of hers is still resonating with us today, and that’s part of what the show is celebrating.”
