With the vocal collaboration of Amber Webber (Black Mountain, Lightning Dust), the song "Light Your Way Home" has a different sound than what we've heard from METZ.

The singer and guitarist of the Canadian band Alex Edkins wrote about this track from the new album — Up on Gravity Hill:

“Light Your Way Home” is definitely one of our favorites from Up On Gravity Hill. I was listening to lots of Jesu and Low (as I do most winters) when writing this one. Lyrically, it’s about missing your loved ones to the point of losing your grip on reality. 

And he talks about the production of the track:

We distorted and added a mechanical slap back to the drums to create a wild and huge sound. I love how big we got the production on this one. It’s like nothing we’ve ever made before, sonically or lyrically. Amber Webber (Black Mountain, Lightning Dust) was so great to work with, and her voice just takes this song to another stratosphere. I think the video by Colin Medley perfectly captures the vibe and intent of the song.

Up on Gravity Hill will be released on April 12th via Sub Pop.
