Mary Timony Announces New Solo Album, Plots Tour, Shares Video for New Song “Dominoes”: Watch


Mary Timony of Helium, Ex Hex, and Autoclave has announced her new album Untame the Tiger. Her first new solo album in 15 years is out February 23 via Merge. She’s also announced a 2024 tour and shared the video for lead single “Dominoes.” Check it out below.

Timony produced the new album with Joe Wong and Dennis Kane; Dave Fridmann mixed the album with John Agnello and Kane. It was recorded during a period when she was serving as her parents’ primary caregiver. Both of her parents have since died.

“This was the hardest thing I’ve been through. Every week I had to manage a new crisis. I started realizing that I gotta control the things that I can,” Timony said in a statement. “Because I was making impossible decisions on behalf of my parents, creative choices now seemed more manageable. Since I had to confront the reality of loss, I realized what was important to me about being alive, and I became less scared. The record became my anchor in a time when I was losing so much around me. It felt like all I had—a guide that helped me through, and gave me hope.”
