MEG initially teased this chapter last year with the release of three singles, eluding as to what’s to come during this album cycle. ‘Sophia <144> (Ft. Nicole Perretti)‘ was a song about unification, ‘CHILDREN OF LIGHT II’ was a song about facing our fears to become who we are, and ‘HTIS (Hiding That I’m Sexual) (Ft. Luna Shadows and Carmen Vandenberg)‘ (member of Grammy—Nominated rock band Bones UK), focused on becoming acquainted with the insecurities and imperfections of the self. All singles tie into the overarching album theme of the “liberation of the self by bringing light to the shadows,” according to MEG herself. All singles eclipsed over 2M+ Spotify streams and 1.5M+ views on YouTube.
ABOUT MEG MYERS:
Meg Myers chooses to live. Now, this choice has required time and transformation as well as unshackling herself from the expectations of a society too narcissistic to give a shit, trusting her gut independent of external opinions, listening to her intuition, and writing the kind of music she always wanted to. As such, her third full-length album, TZIA (Sumerian Records), soundtracks a moment of awakening emotionally, sexually, and spiritually in bursts of raw power, electronic fits, alternative experimentation, and jarring pop. Meg has dedicated the better part of the last decade to breaking free.
She has piled up hundreds of millions of streams across albums such as Sorry (2015) and Take Me To The Disco (2018) highlighted by the likes of ‘Desire’, ‘Sorry’, ‘Numb’, and ‘Make A Shadow’. Along the way, she has canvassed the country alongside the Pixies, Alt-J, Alanis Morissette, My Chemical Romance, Royal Blood, Smashing Pumpkins, and Jane’s Addiction in addition to igniting Jimmy Kimmel LIVE! and gracing the bills of Coachella, Lollapalooza, and Governors Ball. Pre-Stranger Things, she breathed fire into Kate Bush’s ‘Running Up That Hill’ with a stunning rendition initially introduced on NPR Tiny Desk. The cover made history by capturing #1 on the Billboard Alternative Chart 42 weeks after its release. She’s also earned the praise of Billboard, Cosmopolitan, GRAMMY.com, Nylon, Rolling Stone, and more. Beginning in 2019, she crafted the bulk of what would become TZIA at home in Los Angeles with just a piano, guitar, and ukulele before rounding out the process with collaborators such as Andy D. Park, Thomas Powers, and Mike Elizondo.
