Explosions in the Sky Share Majestic ‘Logic of a Dream’ From New Album ‘The Wilderness’
Explosions in the Sky are due to release their first studio album in five years this spring, and now, they have shared a second track from their forthcoming seventh full-length.
EITS premiered the six-and-a-half-minute “Logic of a Dream” on Zane Lowe's Beats 1 show today (Feb. 29). It stays true to the Austin post-rock outfit’s history of epic, elaborate instrumentals, propelled by an undercurrent of barreling drums before giving way to serene interludes. Take a listen below; the new song follows the previously released lead single “Disintegration Anxiety.”
Both songs will appear on The Wilderness when it arrives on April 1 via Temporary Residence. It’s EITS' first album (outside their soundtracks for 2013’s Prince Avalanche and Lone Survivor and 2014’s Manglehorn) since 2011’s Take Care, Take Care, Take Care. For the first time, the band recruited an outside producer, John Congleton (Cloud Nothings, St. Vincent), to helm the record.
According to a press release, The Wilderness' inspiration is just as grand as its two singles suggest, exploring “the infinite unknown, utilizing several of the band’s own definitions of ‘space’ (outer space, mental space, physical geography of space) as compositional tools.” Take a look at the cover art, track list and the band’s upcoming tour dates below:
