Meg Myers released her new album, ‘Take Me To The Disco’ back in July, via 300 Entertainment. The album was met with critical acclaim, including from Billboard, which called it “Cathartic…life-affirming”, while Uproxx described it “as powerful as it is unsettling”. She joined forces with producer, Christian “Leggy” Landon to co-write most of the songs, and enlisted the services of drummer Victor Indrizzo (known for his work with Depeche Mode), as well as The Section Quartet, bringing in live strings.
‘Numb’ is the lead single from the album, and takes a haunting look at the pressures of the music business, as well as life in general.
“‘Feeling numb’ relates to the many pressures of life and our reactions to this weight. When this burden becomes too much and we can no longer run…we essentially numb out.”
The track is a powerful “weapon against the modern-day frustrations of inherent in life and music” (Billboard), and sees Meg pairing with director Clara Aranovich for the video, with the latter bringing a new, deeper meaning to the story.
“When I first wrote ‘Numb…it was about my experience with a major record label. But as I dug deeper, I found that it goes back to some early childhood stuff and how shutting down, or escaping, felt like the safer thing to do,” Meg says.
The track is clearly making a huge impact, since its release it’s garnered over 3.5 million streams on Spotify alone.
