Tim Heidecker and Weyes Blood’s Natalie Mering have joined forces for a new song called ‘Nothing’. Co-written by both artists, the track is taken from Heidecker’s upcoming album Fear of Death, which also includes contributions from the Lemon Twigs, Foxygen’s Jonathan Rado, and more. Listen to it below.
“I wanted to write a religious sounding song about agnosticism,” Heidecker said of the song in a statement. “I wrote it a little poppier/jauntier, but working with Natalie and Drew (Erickson), we smoothed it out into something more haunting and (in my opinion ) beautiful. We crammed the session into the end of an overdub day/night, just the three of us doing it live with Natalie adding those incredible angel harmonies over the bridge. Drew and (Jonathan) Rado later added all sorts of goodness to it. The second verse is a very literal description of my experience at the SXSW premiere of Us. I’m pretty proud of this one in general. I hope it delivers some goosebumps.”
