Avant-garde folk singer/songwriter/performer Natalie Merins has long been involved in the music industry, working with acts like Ariel Pink's Haunted Graffiti and Jackie-O-Motherfucker, and now it seems her work is starting to pay off. The 26-year-old's majestic new ballad, "Some Winters" was just premiered on Vogue, a sparse, chilling tale comprised of glowing piano chords and Merins' freakishly eerie vocals. The song is her second single as Weyes Blood, named after a Flannery O'Connor novel, set to appear on her forthcoming new album The Innocents, named after Truman Capote's film adaptation of Turn of the Screw. Fiona Apple, eat your heart out. Grab a hot cup of herbal tea, throw on some slippers, and listen to "Some Winters" below. The Innocents drops on October 21st via Mexican Summer.
