U.S. Girls (aka Meghan Remy) has announced a new album, Heavy Light, and shared a self-directed video for its first single, "Overtime." She has also announced some tour dates. Heavy Light is due out March 6 via 4AD. Check out the "Overtime" video below, followed by the album's tracklist and a press photo, as well as the tour dates. Above is the album's cover art.

Heavy Light is the follow-up to 2017's In a Poem Unlimited and 2015's Half Free, both also released on 4AD. Remy self-produced Heavy Light and worked with co-writers Basia Bulat and Rich Morel. It was recorded in Montreal's Hotel 2 Tango studio with 20 session musicians, including E Street Band saxophonist Jake Clemons. Maximilian 'Twig' Turnbull, Steve Chahley, and Tony Price mixed the album.

A press release describes Heavy Light as "a set of songs conceived as a balance between orchestral percussion (as richly arranged by percussionist Ed Squires) and the human voice (conducted by Kritty Uranowski)."

The press release adds: "The resulting album finds Remy casting herself as lead voice among a harmonious multitude, the singers of which lend not only their voices, but also share reflections on childhood experiences that are collaged into moving spoken word interludes throughout the album."
