Singer-songwriter Margaret Glaspy is happy to announce the forthcoming release of a new single “Love Is Real” b/w “Heart Shape” via ATO on March 29. Today she drops the A-side, a song that serves as the perfect ode to love. The track’s sublime guitar melds seamlessly with her haunting vocals for the song which will surely resonate both on Valentines Day and throughout the year. Margaret shares, ““For the last 3 years, I’ve been humming this song. What you hear now is a voice memo of myself and Julian Lage playing it in our Brooklyn laundry room put to a string arrangement recorded at Sonic Ranch Studios in Texas.” “This song has taken on many different meanings and in my mind it has been directed toward different people. In the end, I think I needed to hear this song the most to remember that love is real and that I belong. For all of the heartache that life brings, there is infinite love. Now, maybe it can be a reminder for someone else.”
“Love Is Real” marks the first new music from Margaret since the release of her 2020 album, the critically acclaimed Devotion (ATO). Today she is excited to share that she will be hitting the road as direct support for Spoon on the first leg of their upcoming tour. She has handpicked by Jim Eno to join the tour and the dates kick off April 6 in Boston, MA and conclude in Wilmington, NC on April 28. She will play New York City’s Hammerstein Ballroom on April 16. In addition Margaret has a handful of headlining dates including a stop at Levon Helms Studios in Woodstock, NY and a slot at this year’s Corona Capital Guadalajara festival.
