‘My Heart Is a Glow Stick That’s Been Cracked’: Weyes Blood to Return With New Album

Days after teasing new music, Weyes Blood has announced that she will return with the new album And in the Darkness, Hearts Aglow, out Nov. 18th via Sup Pop.

The California singer-songwriter — real name Natalie Mering — will finally follow up her excellent 2019 LP Titanic Rising, the first in a trilogy of records that grappled with universal despair and climate change. The second, And in the Darkness, will explore themes of hope. “We’re in a fully functional shit show,” Mering said in a statement. “My heart is a glow stick that’s been cracked, lighting up my chest in an explosion of earnestness.”

Ahead of the release, Mering dropped the dreamy six-minute “It’s Not Just Me, It’s Everybody,” which opens with her voice floating across the piano. Mering co-produced the record with Jonathan Rado; guest appearances include Hand Habits’ Meg Duffy, Oneohtrix Point Never’s Daniel Lopatin, and more.

After touring the U.K. and Europe in early 2023, Mering will head to the States for a tour that kicks off in Nashville on Feb. 22. Tickets go on sale Friday.
