Weyes Blood Cancels 2020 Tour Plans, Starts Work On 'Titanic Rising' Follow Up

Wednesday, 27 May 2020 Written by Huw Baines

Weyes Blood has cancelled her 2020 tour plans.

June shows in Dublin and London as part of her A Lot Has Changed Tour are among those affected. “As you may have assumed, I am canceling all of my headline shows for 2020,” Natalie Mering said in a statement.

“But I'm beginning to work on my next album that will come out in 2021- a different time, when hopefully we can see each other face to face once again.”

Mering released ‘Titanic Rising’ in 2019 and alongside news of the cancellations she has shared a video for Wild Time, which you can stream alongside her full message below.

Good day everyone,

Here is a video for my song “Wild Time” that was shot on 16mm pre-Pandemic, then edited together during isolation. Felt like the right time to let this video out into the world, seeing as we're all getting saddled down by some pretty grim realities. This song is about yearning for wildness and Mother Nature in a time of chaos. It’s for sensitive people who worry about the fate of humanity and feel powerless to do anything about it.

I've spent a lot of time thinking apocalyptic thoughts and realizing that won't get you anywhere. What if the world has always been ending? What if the sprawl of our cities are just as wild as the forests? What if climate change and the destruction of our natural habitat is a reflection of the nature within us, however sublimely horrifying and hard to understand?  We're animals, we play out a very precarious drama of life, and we grasp for what's left of the protective womb - but maybe the notion that we're somehow separated from her is an illusion. Maybe it is, truly, a wild time to be alive. Maybe getting in touch with that as a culture and society would avert the worst case scenarios of ecological crisis and existential dread.

If you've gotten this far, wow, thank you for actually taking the time to read this. In other news, as you may have assumed, I am canceling all of my headline shows for 2020, but I'm beginning to work on my next album that will come out in 2021- a different time, when hopefully we can see each other face to face once again.
