Margaret Glaspy has announced her new single “Love Is Real” b/w “Heart Shape” via ATO on March 29. Today she is sharing the A-side, a song that serves as the perfect ode to love. The track’s guitar is the perfect pairing with Glaspy’s vocals for the song which will surely resonate both on Valentines Day. Margaret shares, ““For the last 3 years, I’ve been humming this song. What you hear now is a voice memo of myself and Julian Lage playing it in our Brooklyn laundry room put to a string arrangement recorded at Sonic Ranch Studios in Texas.” “Love Is Real” marks the first new music from Margaret since the release of her 2020 album, Devotion (ATO).

“This song has taken on many different meanings and in my mind it has been directed toward different people. In the end, I think I needed to hear this song the most to remember that love is real and that I belong. For all of the heartache that life brings, there is infinite love. Now, maybe it can be a reminder for someone else.”

Due to the pandemic, Margaret was forced to cancel her world-wide tour around the release of Devotion. Today she is excited to share that she will be hitting the road as direct support for Spoon on the first leg of their upcoming tour. She has handpicked by Jim Eno to join the tour and the dates 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. In addition Margaret has a handful of headlining dates including a stop at Levon Helms Studios in Woodstock, NY and a slot at this year’s Corona Capital Guadalajara festival.
