Margaret Glaspy has announced a new album, Devotion, and shared its first single, "Killing What Keeps Us Alive" via a video for the track. She has also announced some tour dates. Devotion is due out March 27 via ATO. Check out the Alex Chaloff-directed "Killing What Keeps Us Alive" video below, followed by the album's tracklist and cover art, as well as Glaspey's upcoming tour dates.  

Devotion is the follow-up to Glaspey's 2016-released debut album, Emotions and Math. Glaspy co-produced the album with Tyler Chester and recorded it at Atomic Sound in Red Hook, Brooklyn. "Tyler and I proved to be a very good match in the studio," says Glaspy in a press release. "I love being very hands-on with my records and he was a force of nature without restricting my sense of what the record should be. His instincts and ability are truly inspiring." 

Glaspy says Devotion is "about letting love in even when you don't know what will happen when you do. It's about devoting your heart to someone or something, against all odds."

Comparing Devotion to Emotions and Math, the singer/songwriter/guitarist says: "This record is very different from the last. It's not about being righteous or all-knowing, it's about letting love in even when you don't know what will happen when you do. It's about devoting your heart to someone or something, against all odds."

At the end of the press release Glaspy reflects on how she has grown between the two albums. "I'm learning that life is painful but you take the bad with the good; that love is hard but if you love someone, you make yourself available; that life is short and it's okay to be sincere," she says. "I'm starting to be able to write about these things and it's a feat for myself as an artist and growth for me as a person."
