It’s the return of Sulu and Excelsior, the project helmed by composer/filmmaker Steven Mallorca, who’s teased listeners with the video for the new single “Run and Hide.” The single is off the new album So Ends The Honeymoon, slated for release on December 2, 2022, and follows up 2019’s stunning The Antimatter Suite. This is Mallorca’s first new vocal material since the last full-length release, which came with a few challenges.
Mallorca offers, “I started writing and building the beats in the months after surgery, and playing all the instruments after that. But all the singing, rapping, and trumpet parts were a big challenge for someone that literally had a piece of their lung cut out. The breath had to come with time and a lot of hard work to physically and mentally get back to performance shape.”
