Weyes Blood's And In The Darkness, Hearts Aglow, her astonishing 2022 album

Second album of a planned trilogy that began with 2019's Titanic Rising

"Like our planet, this album is a rare thing of wonder." — The Telegraph (U.K.)

"A beautifully wrought pop record that grapples with the disquiet hanging over the globe." — Rolling Stone

Technological agitation. Narcissism fatigue. A galaxy of isolation. These are the new norms keeping Weyes Blood (aka Natalie Mering) up at night and the themes at the heart of her release, And in the Darkness, Hearts Aglow. The celestial-influenced folk album is her follow-up to the acclaimed Titanic Rising. (Pitchfork, NPR, and The Guardian admiringly named it one of 2019's best.)

While Titanic Rising was an observation of doom to come, And in the Darkness, Hearts Aglow is about being in the thick of it: a search for an escape hatch to liberate us from algorithms and ideological chaos. "We're in a fully functional shit show," Mering says. "My heart is a glow stick that's been cracked, lighting up my chest in an explosion of earnestness."
