Liz Longley's WEIGHTLESS Out Now; 'Swing' Music Video Debuts

Weightless, the new album from acclaimed singer/songwriter Liz Longley, is out now on Sugar Hill Records. Longley recorded the 10-song collection in Nashville with Bill Reynolds (Band of Horses, Avett Brothers, Lissie). The record luxuriates in bold pop with rock-and-roll edges.

The Dallas Morning News enthuses, "Liz Longley's Weightless triggers an 'undeniable, indescribable' spark. Her work carries something more, a cleverness, a wit and a mix of musical styles mastered at the renowned Berklee College of Music in Boston."

Listen to "Weightless" in The Playlist on Spotify.

PopMatters premiered the album last week, calling it "packed to the gills with instantly memorable pop rock songs, many of which could be chartbound," and praising Longley's "top notch" songwriting, noting that it's "full of relatable tales of life and relationships."

Today, Popdose premiered the video for Longley's single "Swing." The video was shot on location in Liz's adopted hometown of Nashville, TN by Sean Hagwell (Mike Posner, Chancellor Warhol, Paul McDonald) and features extras from Nashville's acclaimed 4th Wall Acting Studio. Regarding the album, Popdose says, "A bright, yet powerful collection of brand new songs that shows how much Ms. Longley has to offer." Watch the video for "Swing" here.

Longley will take her intriguing "meld of folk, Americana, and pop"(AllMusic) on the road this fall. Her Weightless tour dates kick off September 15 at The Altamont Theatre in Asheville, NC. A full list of dates is available below.
