Sub Pop Records sterling roster of fantastic artistic talent just got a little bit deeper today following the announcement that Weyes Blood, aka Natalie Mering, has signed with the label. What’s more, they revealed that the L.A.-based singer-songwriter plans to release her next, full-length album under their banner sometime next year.
Weyes Blood had been previously singed to a different indie label, Mexican Summer, who released her three previous studio albums The Outside Room in 2011, The Innocents in 2014, and last year’s critically adored release Front Row Seat To Earth. It looks like the pair of covers, a special 7″ comprised of takes on Fred Neil’s “Everbody’s Talkin’” and Soft Machine’s “A Certain Kind” will be her final releases for Mexican Summer.
This Fall, Weyes Blood is set to hit the road supporting one of Sub Pop’s other stalwart signees, Father John Misty. If you want to check out the pair live, check out the full listing of their shows together below.
