L.A.-based rock starlet Meg Myers has announced details of her highly anticipated third LP TZIA, which drops on 24th March 2023 via Sumerian Records. In addition to news of the record, Myers has dropped new music by way of single Me.
The leading single from the album, Me, is an upbeat, angsty showstopper that also showcases Myers’ signature lyricism along with an accompanying music video. To celebrate the release, the pop/rock disruptor will kick off a headline tour in April 2023 alongside Weathers, where she will perform many of these tracks live for the very first time.

Of the new tune, Myers says: “I wrote Me because I needed clarity on what I was feeling about my relationship at the time, and writing is one of my most potent forms of therapy and how I receive messages from the divine. I had been coming up with all these moody songs for so long but I felt this urge to play something more upbeat, angsty, and kinda funky on the guitar. I had this major revelation writing it, where I realised everything I had been looking for in a partner was already inside of me. Which sounds cliche, but it was this very powerful moment where I was finally able to see the depth of myself.”

About the album, Myers comments: “TZIA is the manifestation of a four-year-long journey of healing, existential awakening, transformation, and rebirth. I am so grateful to be able to share this light and the insights I have gained with you through this exploration and expression of my deepest and most raw and honest feelings that have emerged from this period of self-reflection.”
She continues, “TZIA is here to question our belief systems and open up our hearts. It is here to inspire us to look beyond the limited lenses we have been programmed to view ourselves and the world so that we can integrate our fears and embrace our sovereignty as the wild, badass, cosmic warriors of light we were born to be.”
Myers initially teased this chapter last year with the release of three singles, eluding as to what’s to come during this album cycle. Sophia <144> (Ft. Nicole Perretti) was a song about unification, CHILDREN OF LIGHT II was a song about facing our fears to become who we are, and HTIS (Hiding That I’m Sexual) (Ft. Luna Shadows and Carmen Vandenberg) (member of Grammy—Nominated rock band Bones UK), focused on becoming acquainted with the insecurities and imperfections of the self. All singles tie into the overarching album theme of the “liberation of the self by bringing light to the shadows,” according to Myers herself.
Fingers crossed Meg Myers can take a trip across the pond for some UK and European shows!
