Published Mar 17, 2016Colin Stetson is nearly ready to reveal his new record SORROW in its entirety, and he's shared another excerpt from the ambitious project.
SORROW hears the multi-instrumentalist reinterpreting Henryk Górecki's Symphony No. 3, injecting it with his own black metal, early electronic music and saxophone influences. The piece was created with electric guitars, synths and string instruments, showing off a different side to Stetson's musical prowess. It also hears him enlisting the help of his Arcade Fire collaborator Sarah Neufeld, Esmerine's Rebecca Foon and Liturgy's Greg Fox.
We've already heard samplings of the symphony with "I (Extract)" and "Sorrow – III (Extract II)," and now Stetson has offered up another preview of the album with the brooding, operatic "Sorrow II (Extract)."
Give it a listen in the player below. SORROW is due out on April 8 through Kartel Music Group.
