Glow, The Innocence Mission's third album, was released in 1995 on A&M Records. Musically, it marks a radical departure for the group, as The Sundays/10,000 Maniacs-inspired dream pop aesthetic found on their first two albums was replaced by a more straightforward, cleaner rock sound. The album was recorded over a several month period at Kingsway Studios, New Orleans, Louisiana and Bad Animals Studios, Seattle, Washington.
