Weyes Blood has released alternate takes of tracks from her 2019 critically acclaimed album “Titanic Rising”. Compiled on an EP titled Rough Trade Session, the set is available now via her label Sub Pop Records.

As end-of-year-list compilation season moves into full swing, most of us have probably been revisiting Weyes Blood’s staggering April release Titanic Rising. The baroque, psychedelic, and very much Jonathan Rado produced LP—and Natalie Mering’s first released via Sub Pop Records caught our ears over six months ago, but now you can hear a handful of the album’s singles anew courtesy of Rough Trade.

Streaming on DSPs worldwide today, Weyes Blood’s Rough Trade Session was recorded by Ariel Rechtshaid, and features a straightforward version of the ethereal  “Wild Times,” as well as slight reworkings of “Everyday,” the anthemic “Something to Believe,” and “A Lot Has Changed” (retitled “A Lot’s Gonna Change”). The alternate takes are stripped down and intimate, with Weyes Blood’s vintage, velvety vocals looming over piano chords.

The Rough Trade Session cover art is from the same photoshoot as Titanic Rising, featuring an underwater bedroom Weyes Blood designed herself.The release comes on the verge of yet another set of tour dates, these ones spanning Europe and Australia through 2020.
