Published Apr 24, 2019Arcade Fire multi-instrumentalist Richard Reed Parry has announced plans to follow last year's Quiet River of Dust Vol. 1 with the aptly titled Quiet River of Dust Vol. 2.
The 10-track album, which has the subtitle That Side of the River, will arrive on June 21 via Secret City in Canada and Anti- elsewhere.
Parry has previewed the album with a video for its closing track "Long Way Back," sharing the following statement:
"Long Way Back" is a song about remembering everything you've ever lived. Your childhood home, the happy or heavy or beautiful or miserable feelings you ever lived with, the fleeting and pristine random moments of perfection, the infinitely complex tapestry of emotions you feel towards your parents; anything that resides anywhere in those floating worlds that exist inside your mind and your heart, holding all these things up to the light of memory, embracing it all and then letting it go.
