Margaret Glaspy returns to her roots on new tour-recorded EP 'The Sun Doesn't Think' - WXPN | Vinyl At Heart

This Friday, producer and singer-songwriter Margaret Glaspy is releasing a new EP called The Sun Doesn’t Think, which she wrote while touring for 2023’s Echo the Diamond. Recorded in just a few days, The Sun Doesn’t Think was engineered by Mark Goodell and mixed and mastered by Jason Richmond.

Glaspy’s first single from the EP, “24/7,” is a lamentful lullaby. Simply guitar and Glaspy’s voice, the song contains wistful imagery of childhood and the refrain, “this is why my heart beats so quickly.”

“This song represents my attempt to understand how the threads of my childhood have woven the adult costume that I wear,” Glaspy said in a recent statement. “I started to see that my beliefs about love and life had not evolved since I was a little girl and it had a pretty direct link to my own sense of worry and anxiety.”

The Sun Doesn’t Think marks a return to Glaspy’s roots, inspired by the work of musicians Kim Gordon, Tom Waits and author Niel Gaiman. After initially exploring themes of grief and harsh truths in Echo the Diamond, The Sun Doesn’t Think pushes further into what it means to be an artist. The EP includes songs like “Bathtub,” which is meant to explore the “inner dialogue of an artist… feeling stumped or challenged, questioning your own work.”

“I love being an adult,” Glaspy said. “With it comes the opportunity to connect your own dots.”

Glaspy will be playing at the Sellersville Theater on May 3rd and will be at Wayne Music Fest June 8. More information available on XPN’s Concert Calendar. Listen to “24/7” here or watch the visualizer below. Tour dates and tracklist below.
