U.S. Girls announce new album ‘Heavy Light’ and share new single ‘Overtime’

Meg Remy is back

U.S. Girls have shared new single ‘Overtime’ and announced the release of their forthcoming seventh studio album ‘Heavy Light’.

The new album from Meg Remy and her band was recorded live with 20 session musicians – including E Street Band saxophonist Jake Clemons – and acts as a follow-up to 2018’s critically acclaimed ‘In A Poem Unlimited’.

Due out March 6, ‘Heavy Light’ features “reflections on childhood experiences that are collaged into moving spoken word interludes,” according to a press release.
