Weyes Blood transcends on the new age stunner “God Turn Me Into A Flower”

We’re just a couple of days away from the release of Weyes Blood‘s new album And In The Darkness, Hearts Aglow, but she’s giving us one final teaser to follow up “It’s Not Just Me, It’s Everybody” and “Grapevine”.

The new track is called “God Turn Me Into A Flower” and eschews the Laurel Canyon stylings of the majority of Weyes Blood’s work in favour of a new age electronic drifter that features Daniel Lopatin (Oneohtrix Point Never) on synth. It finds Natalie Mering both lamenting and exalting her softness, wishing to be turned into a flower so as to express her true form without being crushed down by life. As the synths swell and her transformation aurally takes place, a flurry of birds is heard amidst the overwhelming beauty – it would be pure cheese in most hands, but Mering is a master of her craft and ensures that this is yet another overwhelmingly moving track.

Listen to “God Turn Me Into A Flower” below or find it on streamers.

Weyes Blood’s new album And In The Darkness, Hearts Aglow is coming out on November 18 through Sub Pop (pre-order/save). You can find her on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.
