I want to feel you in bones
Boy, I’m gonna love you
I’m going to tear into your soul

Two decades later, Sarah McLachlan’s “Possession” now plays out like a tale told by high school students when compared to “Desire,” the first single from Make a Shadow, the new EP from Meg Myers. Expanding on the guitar-and-beat motif of McLachlan’s 1993 single, “Desire” even includes the requisite solo from Billy Idol guitarist Steve Stevens.

To be released by Atlantic Records on 11 February, Make a Shadow and “Desire” are targeted to 21st century sexual mores; Myers and director Jordan Bahat present an Exorcist-like video that’s much more sexually charged than McLachlan’s original. With this marketing don’t be surprised to hear “Desire” on a soundtrack to a teen vampire/horror film franchise soundtrack in the very near future. After all, sex sells. 

Watch the NSFW video for “Desire” below and pre-order the forthcoming Make a Shadow via iTunes.
