Today, Meg Remy announces details of her sixth studio album In a Poem Unlimited, which will be released on 16th February 2018, plus the official video for a new U.S. Girls song, “Velvet 4 Sale“.
The album opener “Velvet 4 Sale” is out today. The song concerns a female narrator imploring another to buy a gun for protection, impressing that the only way to change men is for women to use violence. Remy says, “Men are lucky women (and children) have yet to take up arms. And although I hope this never happens and I completely disagree that violence is ever effective, this very idea was ripe for a song.”
Watch below the video for new single “Velvet 4 Sale”, co-directed by Remy and Alex Kingsmill.
Remy’s second release for 4AD was tracked in collaboration with Toronto-based instrumental collective the Cosmic Range, and features arrangements by long-time contributors Maxmilian Turnball and Louis Percival.
