The New Weyes Blood single “Everyday” chronicles the chaos of modern love and dating, short attention spans, restlessness and the continuous crusade (and carnage) to find some kind of all-encompassing soul mate. The lead single comes from her upcoming fourth album and Sub Pop debut “Titanic Rising” (out 4/5)—the cover was shot in a bedroom submerged fully underwater (zero CGI!).
“Titanic Rising,” written and recorded during the first half of 2018, is the culmination of three albums and many years of touring: stronger chops and ballsier decisions. It’s an achievement in transcendent vocals and levitating arrangements, conversational lyrics and thoughtful commentary on the modern condition of our souls. Like the Kinks meet WWII (or is it Bob Seger meets Enya?) “Titanic Rising” manages to ride that line between classic songwriting and post-apocalyptic futurism.
Weyes Blood has also scheduled an intergalactic headlining tour starting the spring of in support of the upcoming album, and which she’s dubbed the ’True Love Is Making A Comeback Tour 2019′ (see our Tours page!).
“There are complicated influences mixed in with more relatable nostalgic melodies. In my mind, my music feels so big, a true production. I’m not a huge, popular artist, but I feel like one when I’m in the studio. But it’s never taking away from the music. I’m just making a bigger space for myself.”—Natalie Mering (aka Weyes Blood)
