U.S. Girls Announce New Album <i>Heavy Light</i>, Share Lead Single "Overtime"

Back after delivering one of 2018’s best albums in In A Poem Unlimited, Meg Remy’s U.S. Girls have announced their seventh record, Heavy Light, out March 6 via 4AD, offering a first preview in the form of previously released, now-reworked lead single “Overtime.”

Produced by Remy, co-written by Remy, Basia Bulat and Rich Morel, and recorded live with a whopping 20 session musicians, including saxophonist Jake Clemons of the E Street Band, Heavy Light finds Remy looking inward, a press release explains, “recounting personal narratives to create a deeply introspective about-face. The songs are an inquest into the melancholy flavor of hindsight, both personal and cultural. Remy makes this notion formally explicit with the inclusion of three re-worked, previously released songs.” These include “Statehouse (It’s A Man’s World),” “Red Ford Radio” and today’s new iteration of “Overtime.”

Paste’s best live band of 2018, U.S. Girls have also set a cross-country North American tour for this spring, with 27 shows starting in Detroit on April 4. Ahead of their new album’s early-March release, the band will perform “special underplays” in Toronto, Montreal and New York City in mid-February.
