Natalie Mering, better known as Weyes Blood, announced her new album in early September, sharing a preview of the project as she dropped the ghostly song “It’s Not Just Me, It’s Everybody.” Now the singer has an equally bizarre music video to go along with it.
When announcing the album, the singer detailed it in an Instagram post: “This dystopian romance novel took a lot of black juice at birth. Forged in fire as they say. I’m so relieved to finally share the opening track, “It’s not just me, it’s everyone” Listen with headphones with an open soul, maybe you’ll get a scary glow on your chest if you have luck.
His next album And in the darkness hearts burn is set for release on November 18 and will be the second installment in a trilogy that began with the release of his fourth studio album, Rise of the Titanicin 2019.
“‘It’s not just me, it’s everyone’ is a Buddhist hymn, rooted in the interconnectedness of all beings and the unraveling of our social fabric,” the singer described on the track. opening of the album when it is released on September 12. “Our culture relies less and less on people. This is creating an unprecedented new level of isolation. The promise we can buy out of this void offers little comfort in the face of the fear we all live with now – the fear of becoming stale Something is wrong, and although the feeling appears differently to each individual, it is universal.
Now you can hear the haunting melody along with its equally macabre music video. Check out “It’s Not Just Me, It’s Everyone” below, in which twisted Disney drama plays out against a sore piano arrangement and the airy, sing-song vocals of Weyes Blood à la Joni Mitchell. “Watch this dystopian dance number in technicolor, witness technological cannibalism and watch me dance my heart out in ‘toon town’,” the singer captioned a clip from the video on social media.
Weyes Blood will begin touring in support of their upcoming album in early 2023. In Holy Flux Tour will begin in January for a series of European dates and continue in the United States throughout the spring.
