Thurston Moore Shares “Sans Limites” Feat. Lætitia Sadier

The Daydream Library Series record label has announced Thurston Moore’s new full-length album Flow Critical Lucidity, out September 20, 2024. Pre-orders are available today. The album’s title comes from a lyric in the new single also released today, “Sans Limites” featuring vocals by Stereolab’s Lætitia Sadier. The album sleeve cover art features Jamie Nares’ ‘Samurai Walkman’ — a helmet befitted with tuning forks. Born in Great Britain, Nares is a lifelong friend of Moore from his New York No Wave days, the two often collaborating in art & music. 

‘Sans Limites’ begins with a cyclic guitar & piano figure which expands further and further with each revolution before settling into a two-chord measure introducing lyrics intoning not only about eradicating any limitations towards enlightenment, but going beyond limitations. The idea that a soldier can fight the good fight. A warrior against war,” Moore explains. 

He recorded the song with his group – Deb Googe (bass), Jem Doulton (percussion), James Sedwards  (guitar & piano), and Jon Leidecker (electronics), with additional backing vocals by guest musician Lætitia Sadier of Stereolab. The single is a luminous and inspiring five-minute and seven-second song written & arranged in Switzerland and the UK. “Grow up to the stars / Speak to infinity .…” Thurston sings over piano and guitar.

This follows three previously released singles from the upcoming album – the energetic Isadora Duncan-inspired “Isadora” with a music video starring Sky Ferreira, cerebral “Hypnogram” and stirring Earth Day anthem “Rewilding.”
