Weyes Blood signs to Sub Pop, tours with Father John Misty (2017)

Sub Pop has signed Weyes Blood aka Natalie Mering for the world, to release her label debut in 2018. The label has been longtime fans of the Los Angeles-based musician/singer’s work, from her four releases for Mexican Summer, as well as her collaborations with the likes of Ariel Pink, Perfume Genius, and Drugdealer.

Weyes Blood has just released a new 7-inch single via Mexican Summer.The single featuring covers of Soft Machine’s “A Certain Kind” and Fred Neil’s song “Everybody’s Talkin”. “Everybody’s Talkin’” b/w “A Certain Kind” is a capsule of Mering’s care for those artists and songs that have influenced her, but also a discovery of a different kind — the words and melodies become Mering’s and ours through her intimate interpretation and commitment to seeking culture’s fringes for deeper meaning. For more information on the single, visit mexicansummer.com.

Weyes Blood will also act as direct support on Father John Misty’s forthcoming North American and European fall tour in some of the largest rooms she’s played to date. The tour begins September 18 with a sold out show at Toronto’s Massey Hall and ends November 20 at Lisbon’s Coliseu dos Recreios.  Along the way, she’ll play one-offs at The Institute of Contemporary Art in Boston, Pop Montreal and Joshua Tree’s Desert Daze.
