U.S. Girls have surprise released a new live album: Lives features recordings of performances from 2018 through 2023, assembled in non-chronological order to mimic the feeling of a single show. Check out the new album below.
According to a press release, Lives features three distinct iterations of the U.S. Girls live band: “a jam-oriented outsider jazz-funk unit” for the In a Poem Unlimited era; the Heavy Light band that “reigned in the chaos and placed emphasis on harmonious sounds of stacked female voices”; and the latest version, for Bless This Mess, “that utilizes synthesizers and samplers.”
In a statement, U.S. Girls’ Meg Remy said:
Since releasing Bless This Mess in February, Meg Remy has teamed up with Bootsy Collins for a cover of Leon Russell’s “Superstar.”
