John Cale: Story of Blood (feat. Weyes Blood); new album "Mercy" in January

John Cale and Weyes Blood, nom-de-plume of American singer Natalie Laura Mering, have joined forces for a collaborative single. Cale has dug deep into his bag of sonic tricks and Mering added layers of mesmerizing vocals. Starting out as a gentle piano ballad the track explores both the back roads and the mainstream guise of art-rock and minimalist electronics. This bodes well for the eagerly awaited new album Mercy (out on January 20, 2023 on Double Six / Domino) and the upcoming live shows.

Other guests on the new album are Animal Collective, Sylvan Esso, Tei Shi, Actress, Laurel Halo, and Fat White Family. The video was directed by Jethro Waters.
