Weyes Blood (aka Natalie Mering) released a new album, Titanic Rising, back in April 2019 via Sub Pop, her first album for the label. It was #2 on our Top 100 Albums of 2019 list. Now she has announced some new 2020 tour dates she's dubbing the "A Lot Has Changed" tour. They include some U.S. dates in April, May, July, and August. She also has some dates in Australia and Europe. Check out all the dates below.

Pick up our current print issue (the My Favorite Album Issue) to read our interview with Weyes Blood on her all-time favorite album.

Titanic Rising was also our joint Album of the Week and you can read our rave review of it here.

Titanic Rising includes "Andromeda," a new song she shared in January that was one of our Songs of the Week. When the album was announced Weyes Blood shared a self-directed slasher movie video for the new song "Everyday," which was our #1 Song of the Week. The album cover was photographed in a bedroom fully submerged in water, with no CGI. Video was also shared of Weyes Blood performing a new song from the album, "Something to Believe," at Pitchfork's Midwinter Festival in Chicago. Then she shared another new song, "Movies," via a self-directed video in which a movie theater audience magically jump into the film they are watching. "Movies" was also one of our Songs of the Week. Weyes Blood also recently sang guest vocals on a song by Drugdealer, "Honey." Once the album was released album track "Wild Time" was also one of our Songs of the Week. Then she stopped by Late Night with Seth Meyers to perform "Everyday." Then she stopped by NPR Music to perform three songs as part of their Tiny Desk Concert series, doing "Andromeda," "Wild Time," and "Picture Me Better."

In a previous press release Mering described Titanic Rising as "The Kinks meet WWII or Bob Seger meets Enya."

Weyes Blood's last album, Front Row Seat to Earth, made it all the way to #9 on our Top 100 Albums of 2016 list.
