Hear Weyes Blood’s “Titanic Risen,” an outtake from the Titanic Rising sessions, while playing Roblox Titanic!

Gain access here

Ever wanted to role-play Jack and Rose on the Titanic while listening to a new track from Weyes Blood? Well, now’s your chance!

Hear “Titanic Risen,” an unreleased outtake recorded during the Titanic Rising sessions in Roblox’s sinking ship simulator, the popular, online role-playing game. Aboard Roblox’s Titanic, you can explore the ship’s luxurious interior with fellow passengers and reenact the infamous iceberg spotting. Roleplay as the ship sinks, rooms flood, lifeboats launch, funnels fall, and the ship splits in half, all while listening to Weyes Blood’s “Titanic Risen,” as well as a few selections from Titanic Rising.

Fans can gain access by going to Roblox Titanic where they will be directed to download Roblox on their desktop/mobile, then set up an account/avatar, and explore the room in the ship’s lobby. Roblox Titanic, which sees over 3 million visitors per month, is hosted by Virtual Valley Games, which brings intense simulation experiences to the virtual world.

Weyes Blood’s Titanic Rising, which features the highlights “Movies,” “Everyday,” “Andromeda,” “Something to Believe” and “Wild Time,” is available everywhere from Sub Pop.

A Letter From Weyes Blood / “Wild Time” Video (NSFW)

May 27, 2020

Good day everyone,

Here is a video for my song “Wild Time” that was shot on 16mm pre-Pandemic, then edited together during isolation. Felt like the right time to let this video out into the world, seeing as we’re all getting saddled down by some pretty grim realities. This song is about yearning for wildness and Mother Nature in a time of chaos. It’s for sensitive people who worry about the fate of humanity and feel powerless to do anything about it.

I’ve spent a lot of time thinking apocalyptic thoughts and realizing that won’t get you anywhere. What if the world has always been ending? What if the sprawl of our cities are just as wild as the forests? What if climate change and the destruction of our natural habitat is a reflection of the nature within us, however sublimely horrifying and hard to understand?  We’re animals, we play out a very precarious drama of life, and we grasp for what’s left of the protective womb - but maybe the notion that we’re somehow separated from her is an illusion. Maybe it is, truly, a wild time to be alive. Maybe getting in touch with that as a culture and society would avert the worst case scenarios of ecological crisis and existential dread.

If you’ve gotten this far, wow, thank you for actually taking the time to read this. In other news, as you may have assumed, I am canceling all of my headline shows for 2020, but I’m beginning to work on my next album that will come out in 2021- a different time, when hopefully we can see each other face to face once again.
