Finally. Weyes Blood has announced the anticipated follow-up to her great 2019 album, Titanic Rising (our #1 album of that year). It's titled And In The Darkness, Hearts Aglow, and will be out November 18 via Sub Pop; pre-order it on purple "Loser Edition" vinyl. Like Titanic Rising, Natalie Mering worked with co-producer Jonathan Rado, as well as Rodaidh McDonald on one track, “A Given Thing.” The album, which Mering says is part two of a trilogy started with Titanic, also features contributions from Meg Duffy (Hand Habits), Daniel Lopatin (Oneohtrix Point Never), and Mary Lattimore.
If Titanic Rising was a harbinger of doom, Hearts Aglow is in the middle of it. “We’re in a fully functional shit show,” Mering says. “My heart is a glow stick that’s been cracked, lighting up my chest in an explosion of earnestness.”
