Meg Myers has announced today’s premiere of her new song, co-written and performed as a duet with chart-topping indie-pop tunesmith morgxn. “i hope you cry (with morgxn)” is available now at all DSPs and streaming services.
“Humans bottle things up, hold things in, sweep things under the rug,” says Myers. “That’s what most of us have been taught to do and I feel that is what keeps us in suffering. It was beautiful to be able to connect with morgxn in a way that, to be honest, most men are afraid to. To be vulnerable, to be real, to allow yourself to be seen, that is true strength. ‘i hope you cry’ is permission to do that. All together now…”
“Growing up in the South i didn’t have a lot of models of men who cried,” says morgxn. “It wasn’t until I was much older that I realized I had been holding back my tears; afraid to meet the more vulnerable parts of me. It’s been nice to reacquaint myself with my younger self and make up for lost time. Especially now in the heaviness of everything – it’s nice to just let yourself cry. Working with Meg on this felt like meeting an old friend from another life. The writing was so seamless – in one minute we went from talking/sharing to writing a song. There was never a declaration of now we will make something. It just happened. I think the best songs are like water – they just flow. Release.”

Thank U 4 Taking Me 2 The Disco and I’d Like 2 Go Home Now were announced with last month’s premiere of the powerful new single, “Any Way You Wanna Love.” The song was met by acclaim from such outlets as Vanyaland, which hailed the track’s “impassioned fury,” declaring, “the anthemic alt-pop jammer feels like a Song of the Year contender.” In addition, Myers recently performed a live-at-home acoustic version of “Any Way You Wanna Love” for Syracuse, NY’s 95X.
