METZ Share New Single ‘Light Your Way Home’ Featuring Black Mountain’s Amber Webber

    METZ have released ‘Light Your Way Home’, the latest preview and closing track of their upcoming LP Up on Gravity Hill. Following previous singles ’99’ and ‘Entwined (Street Light Buzz)’, the track features vocals from Amber Webber of Black Mountain. Check out director Colin Medley‘s video for it below.

    “’Light Your Way Home’ is definitely one of our favorites from Up On Gravity Hill,” METZ frontman Alex Edkins explained in a statement. “I was listening to lots of Jesu and Low (as I do most winters) when writing this one. Lyrically, it’s about missing your loved ones to the point of losing your grip on reality. We distorted and added a mechanical slap back to the drums to create a wild and huge sound. I love how big we got the production on this one. It’s like nothing we’ve ever made before, sonically or lyrically. Amber Webber (Black Mountain, Lightning Dust) was so great to work with, and her voice just takes this song to another stratosphere. I think the video by Colin Medley perfectly captures the vibe and intent of the song.”

    Up on Gravity Hill is due out April 12 via Sub Pop.
