Meg Myers in a singer-songwriter from Nashville, Tennessee who has melted and warmed our hearts since her debut in 2011. Since her first album Daughter in the Choir, which was released in 2012, Myers has slowly built momentum and popularity through incredible vocals, well-thought-out lyrics and sheer hard work. In 2013 and 2014, respectively, Myers released two more studio albums and it seems has continued to write and record with the announcement of another masterpiece.
According to her twitter page and online music magazine Pass the Aux, Meg Myers new album will be titled Take Me to the Disco and will be released on July 20th. Her fans, however, will not have to wait long as she has already released her first single “Numb.” Check out the audio video below.
The song fades in with a simple drumbeat and what appears to be a synth or strings. Soon her signature vocals come in and it feels as if her voice could produce a sweet molasses. As she has stated, the song is about her experience with the major record label Atlantic Records. However, as she wrote the song she realized that, as she says “I dug deeper, I found that it goes back to some early childhood stuff and how shutting down, or escaping, felt like the safer thing to do.”
The album will be released under indie label 300 Entertainment in which they have given her what appears to be gree reign on how this album was created. Due to working with 300 Entertainment, Myers was able to employ full string arrangements for six of her songs. All string parts were performed by The Section Quartet.
When talking about the album Meg Myers says that “On the surface, I thought I was writing about love loss but I’ve learned it goes much deeper than that,” Myers said. “It’s going back to the child in me that needed to be healed. I’ve always written from a true place, but in getting to know myself better, I’m now writing from an even deeper level of honesty.”
In support of her album Myers will also play a small amount of shows in some U.S. cities beginning with The Echo in Los Angeles. See the full tour below.
