New music by The Knife and the world rejoices! Incredible how big The Knife is nowadays that just today they release a new track 'Colouring of Pigeons' off their forthcoming opera album called 'Tomorrow, In a Year' to be released March 1st, 2010 and it has swamped Hype Machine! How could you not hear about it. There's over 20 posts about it today alone and sure tons more to follow. Pretty incredible!
Seems the project is a collaborative effort with Mt. Sims and Planningtorock based on Charles Darwin's 'Origin of the Species' and just as you would expect it is brilliant! Coming in at 11 mins long and actually having some operatic moments and amazing experimental sounds. These guys are just on top of their game. Go to The Knife's site here to read more about the project.
Here is 'Colouring of Pieces' that they are giving away to those who sign up to their mailing list, plus the album tracklisting.
Enjoy, I sure as heck am!
