U.S. Girls (aka Meghan Remy) is releasing a new album, Heavy Light, on March 6 via 4AD. Now Remy has shared another song from the album, "4 American Dollars," via a video for the track. Remy co-directed the video with Emily Pelstring (and Beyond Wonderland Films did the visual effects). Watch and listen below, followed by U.S. Girls' upcoming tour dates.

Previously U.S. Girls shared a self-directed video for Heavy Light's first single, "Overtime." "Overtime" was one of our Songs of the Week.

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 previous press release described 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 previous press release added: "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."
