Multi-disciplinary Toronto artist Meg Remy has released a fourth new U.S. Girls song and video for ‘Rosebud’ from her forthcoming album, In a Poem Unlimited . A breathless synth anthem written by the legendary Rich Morel with Remy, ‘Rosebud”s stunning accompanying video, directed by Alex Kingsmill, edited by Remy and starring Max Turnbull, can be viewed in full BELOW.
In a Poem Unlimited , the sixth full-lgenth album by U.S. Girls, will be released on February 16th and includes the singles ‘Pearly Gates’ , ‘Velvet 4 Sale’ and ‘Mad As Hell’ . A dizzying buffet of live grooves, its 11 songs are character studies of women grappling with power and dark reflections on acts of violence. Brought to life by an impressive body of talent – including Toronto collective The Cosmic Range and long-term collaborators Maximilian Turnbull and Louis Percival – In a Poem Unlimited may be Remy’s most individually distilled protest to date.
Beginning next month, U.S. Girls will tour as a 7-piece band throughout North America and Europe this year. All European dates are below.
