British singer-songwriter Arlo Parks has announced a new album: My Soft Machine is out May 26 via Transgressive. The LP’s lead single, “Weightless,” arrives with a music video directed by Marc Oller. Take a look below.
Discussing her single in a press statement, Parks said, “‘Weightless’ surrounds the painful experience of caring deeply about someone who only gives you tiny breadcrumbs of affection. It’s about suddenly realising that a person has dulled your edges and embarking on the slow journey back to being a brighter version of yourself.”
My Soft Machine includes a collaboration with Phoebe Bridgers called “Pegasus.” The two artists previously performed together on BBC Radio 1 and at the 2022 Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival. Find the LP’s tracklist and Arlo Parks’ upcoming tour dates below.
