Heavy Light will be U.S. Girls' seventh studio album and the first since In A Poem Unlimited, released in 2018. The album includes new versions of songs previously released by Meg Ramy ("Statehouse (It’s A Man’s World)", "Red Ford Radio", and "Overtime").

A press release confirms the album was recorded live with 20 session musicians - including E Street Band saxophonist Jake Clemons - in Montreal’s acclaimed Hotel 2 Tango studio. It is described as "a balance between orchestral percussion and the human voice," taking in choral elements alongside spoken word interludes.

"4 American Dollars"
"Overtime"
"IOU"
"Advice To Teenage Self"
"State House (It's A Man's World)"
2Born To Lose"
2And Yet It Moves / Y Se Mueve"
"The Most Hurtful Thing"
"Denise, Don't Wait"
"Woodstock '99"
