Update (18:15 GMT): 4AD have emailed us to let us know that it was nothing more than a "gremlin" blocking the Gloria Ann Taylor song – thank goodness. So you can now listen to 'Love is a Hurting Thing' here.


Back in April we heard 'Damn That Valley' by U.S. Girls. Then we saw the video for 'Woman's Work' and learned that Meg Remy would be releasing an album called Half Free on 25th September via 4AD.

Now Remy has shared the tracklist for the album (find it below), plus the video for another album track called 'Window Shades', a slice of retro sight and sound that borrows the beat from 'Love is a Hurting Thing' by Gloria Ann Taylor. I would have linked you up to the track on YouTube but it's been silenced and removed across the board for copyright reasons, by "[Merlin] Beggars", 4AD's umbrella company, funnily enough. Hmm…

… Anyway, U.S. Girls will be coming to the UK for a few live dates in October; see below.
