“Overtime” is taken from U.S. Girls‘ seventh album, Heavy Light, due out March 6 on 4AD. [Pre-order]
U.S. Girls, aka multi-talented artist Meg Remy, is one of our favourite acts, both in studio and on stage. Her last two albums, Half Free (2015) and In a Poem Unlimited (2018), were amazing and we’re totally excited to listen to her seventh project, which will be released early March. According to the press release, the 13 tracks of Heavy Light were produced by Remy herself and conceived as a balance between orchestral percussion and the human voice. It was recorded live with 20 session musicians – including E Street Band saxophonist Jake Clemons – in Montreal’s acclaimed Hotel 2 Tango studio.
The album will feature three re-worked tracks, including the lead single “Overtime.” The track comes with a video entirely made by Remy and starring Andrea Nann of the Dreamwalker Dance Company. Watch below.
