Mother Mother Share Two More Songs from Their New 'Inside' Album
Hear the band's "Forgotten Souls" and "Pure Love"
Published Apr 30, 2021Once again, Mother Mother are breaking off a piece of their upcoming album Inside. This time, it's a pair of tracks called "Forgotten Souls" and "Pure Love."
Each song has been paired with some visuals, as "Forgotten Souls" has got its very own music video and "Pure Love" a visualizer. You can check out both below.
Of "Forgotten Souls," Mother Mother's Ryan Guldemond said:
"Forgotten Souls" is an older idea that made the record. It was important to me that if we were to include songs conceptualized before Inside, they align with the album's theme. The lyric 'the garden grows in frozen rain' fit perfectly, and quite accurately describes a big part of healing: trust and trusting in the process. We often link growth to external markers of success, and if we can't see it, we don't believe it — but the soul is constantly evolving and expanding, just from time passing. A different kind of soil turns over when we're just simply being, just like the earth enriches beneath the ice in the dead of winter.
As for "Pure Love," he says, "'Pure Love' feels like it came from a celestial kind of place, and centres around a theme of awe for the universe and creation and promotes self-love as a modality for living. I particularly enjoy the fact that it's the only Mother Mother song I've not penned one single lyric for; that only adds to the sense of it having just appeared. Molly was instrumental in writing this one, and sings it beautifully."
The songs follow the previously shared album tracks "I Got Love" and "Stay Behind."
Inside is due out June 25 via Warner Music Canada. See their upcoming tour schedule here, though Mother Mother do not currently have any dates scheduled in Canada.
