Weyes Blood Performs New Song “Something to Believe” From ‘Titanic Rising’ Live at Pitchfork’s Midwinter Festival

You can now watch Weyes Blood perform “Something to Believe,” a beautiful new track from Titanic Rising along with Front Row Seat to Earth standout “Be Free” both filmed live at PitchforkMidwinter Festival at Art Institute of Chicago [see Pitchfork TV March 11th). 

Weyes Blood (pronounced wize bluhd) will release Titanic Rising, her fourth album and Sub Pop records debut, worldwide on CD/LP/DL/CS April 5th, 2019. The album features the lead single  “Everyday,”  and the previously released “Andromeda,” along with highlights “Movies,” “Wild Time,” and the aforementioned “Something to Believe.” The cover for Titanic Rising was shot in a bedroom submerged fully underwater by photographer Brett Stanley (zero CGI). 

Under the Radar says of Titanic Rising, “On Weyes Blood’s radiant and beautifully anachronistic fourth studio album, Natalie Mering achieves a perfectly balanced synthesis between the old and familiar and the new and unexplored [8.5/10].” In its recent interview with Weyes Blood, Pitchfork had this to say, “Building on the gently lilting melodies, complex harmonies, and sophisticated chord changes of her 2016 breakthrough, Front Row Seat to EarthTitanic Rising is Mering’s most ornate and ambitious work to date.”  BUST adds this: “In the stunning opener ‘A Lot’s Gonna Change’ and the slide guitar infused ‘Something to Believe,’ Mering continuously makes the case for pushing forward anyway. These are conversations you’ll want to be privy to, no matter how far out they get [4/5].” And MOJO perfectly sums of the album with this quip, “Cosmic Carpenters, Laurel Canyon in Space.”
