Singer-songwriter Margaret Glaspy has released a new single, “Heart Shape,” the B-side of her latest track, “Love Is Real,” via ATO Records.

She shared “Love Is Real” to critical acclaim, with Consequence saying, “Over swelling strings and a finger-picked guitar, Glaspy sings ‘You belong.’ And you do. Just listen to this song and you’ll feel it.” Northern Transmissions called it “the perfect ode to love.” Stereogum noted Glaspy “loves singing about love” and ‘Heart Shape’ is further proof.”

On the writing and recording of the track she says, “The making of this song lifted me out of my COVID funk. Not being able to make music with my friends hit me hard during quarantine and made me realize why it is so special. I took the opportunity as a sign to get out of my comfort zone – every musician played on this song remotely and for me it was a new way to make art. It reminded me that music is basically magic. It can miraculously transcend location, space, and time.”

Next month Margaret will head off on tour as the direct support for Spoon. She was handpicked by Jim Eno to join the tour and her dates with them kick off April 6 in Boston, MA and conclude in Wilmington, NC on April 28. She will play New York City’s Hammerstein Ballroom on April 16. Margaret will also headline her own shows this Spring including a stop at Levon Helm Studios in Woodstock, NY and a slot at this year’s Corona Capital Guadalajara Festival.

“Love Is Real” marked the first new music from Margaret since the release of her 2020 album, the critically acclaimed Devotion (ATO). The LP found love from Rolling Stone (“starkly beautiful”), to Billboard (“Devotion is a study in contrasts and cohesion…every verse fortifies Glaspy’s voice and the vulnerability she chooses to embrace in life, love and a world gone mad”) to Stereogum (“Margaret Glaspy stun[s] us with her commanding guitar work and penchant for amorous songwriting.”), and beyond.
