Melissa Weikart Announces ‘Here, There’ Out May 27

French/American vocalist, pianist, and composer Melissa Weikart today announced her debut album Here, There will be released May 27th, 2022 via Northern Spy Records.

Alongside the announcement she released the album’s title track and shared the following statement: “‘Here, There’ like many songs on the album, is another one that falls under the category of ‘twisted love song.’ It’s not just another twisted love song though, it’s a special one because it’s also the title track for a body of work that encompasses eight distinct snapshots of self reflection. I wrote the song several years ago while living the intensity of a fleeting summer romance with an expiration date. Choosing to pursue impossible love is dangerously addictive: it serves as a portal to our most impassioned states of being, triggering the highest of highs and the lowest of lows. Sometimes we convince ourselves that it’s the only way we know how to love (it’s not! but we learn). More specifically, the song expresses a desire to be desired as a full self; to be seen and loved for, not in spite of, the flaws that define beauty. And at the end of the day, the song is about pure, unadulterated desire, in all of its irrational spirals and illogical loops that converge to create deep meaning.”
