Singer-songwriter Meg Myers has linked up with Sumerian Records for the release of twin EPs. Coming Nov. 13, the five-song collections, “Thank U 4 Taking Me 2 the Disco” and “I’d Like 2 Go Home Now,” are comprised of both new singles and previously unreleased B-sides.
Myers, whose second album, “Take Me to the Disco,” came out in 2018 and who charted last year with her cover of Kate Bush’s “Running Up That Hill,” describes the songs on the EPs as part of her backstory.
“I’ve been going back and forth for a while now on whether or not I should release these two bodies of work,” she says. “There is a lot of pain and suffering in these songs, but also a lot of hope and healing, as I feel the majority of my music has always encompassed. If I was releasing a book, I would publish the entire book from beginning to end, otherwise how would the reader truly be able to appreciate and receive the wisdom in the magic that begins to unfold in Chapter 11 unless they have first digested the depth of the heartache that was experienced prior. Well, that is how I am viewing these EPs. As an important part of my beautiful crazy healing human experience journey that led me to my spiritual awakening and remembering why I came here in December of 2018. Since then I have begun unlocking my true divine soul purpose on this extraordinary planet and have written almost all of my third album on my piano in my home in Pasadena, which I will be releasing next year.”
With a beat that could pummel catharsis out of a house plant, “Any Way You Wanna Love” arrives as the first single. “My song ‘Any Way You Wanna Love’ is about waking up to the divinity within each and every one of us and stepping into our power as sovereign beings,” Myers says. “No more making ourselves small by repeating patterns that have been passed down to us. It’s time to heal our ancestral lineage. I believe we are all connected through love and that we all have unique gifts and abilities, and it’s important for us to learn how to get present and tune into what our bodies are trying to tell us and express this truth in our hearts in order to liberate ourselves and consciously evolve.”
