The Clientele’s ‘Music for the Age of Miracles’ is about a week away from being released to the masses. Today, the band released another single off of the long anticipated album “Everything You See Tonight Is Different From Itself”.
The near seven minute “Everything You See Tonight Is Different From Itself” sonically explores most of the terrain that surrounds Alasdair MacLean’s lyrics. Muted drum beats, a chorus that soars into the sky, an ominous bridge, and the softness of harpist Mary Lattimore are highlights of The Clientele’s exquisite song.
Alasdair describes the song’s inspiration: “I went to see a ballet at a studio in Kings Cross. It had no music, just one dancer. There were only 30 or 40 of us in the audience. You could hear her breathe. Her shoes sliding on the floor. She was so close. The windows were open and cold air and the street sounds below floated in.”
Pre-order ‘Music for the Age of Miracles’ today via Merge Records on CD and LP, where you can bundle it with an exclusive t-shirt.
