Santa Monica’s Natalie Mering, who records lush, idiosyncratic folk music under the name Weyes Blood, is returning next month with new album Front Row Seat To Earth. We’ve already heard first single “Seven Words” and the rest of the LP continues spinning further and further into ’70s West Coast singer-songwriter territory. New song “Do You Need My Love” is a sumptuously orchestrated odyssey that shoots out into space about halfway through its spellbinding six minutes, and you can (and should) listen below.

Weyes Blood Announces New Album, Shares Video For “Seven Words”

Natalie Mering aka Weyes Blood is returning with a brand new album her third album for Mexican Summer titled “Front Row Seat To Earth”.

returns with her third album for Mexican Summer, Front Row Seat To Earth.

For the record’s introduction she is sharing a video for the gorgeous single “Seven Words.” The Charlotte Linden Ercoli Coe directed clip weaves a narrative of leaving somewhere and something that may feel comfortable to get back to where one belongs melding perfecting with the enveloping warmth of the soundtrack. In a statement about the song Mering said,
“‘Seven Words’ is a wanderer’s tale, a well-worn subgenre in the tradition of farewell songs. The tune itself is trying to evoke the familiar act of leaving somebody in order to save them, or continue seeking. ‘These seven words’ are actually ‘these seven words I say to you,’ implying that words cannot express the feeling of leaving somebody you love.. Likewise the video takes a sideways glance at the weathered symbolism of transforming into a creature that can no longer survive in its previous form.”
