HEILUNG Teases New Single,Reveals Album Details!
Enigmatic world music collective HEILUNG will be releasing its third full-length, 'Drif,' on August 19, 2022 via Season of Mist. In addition to revealing the album art and tracklist, which can be found below, the musical act is now sharing a teaser for their upcoming new single and music video, "Anoana." The clip can be seen and heard at THIS LOCATION.
HEILUNG comments on the album title, “'Drif' means 'gathering,' a throng of people, a horde, a crowd, a pack. In symbiosis with the album title, 'Drif' consists of a flock, a collection, a gathering, a collage of songs, that much like little flames were seeking towards each other, to join, to bond, to create, and be greater together. This album has very clearly dictated its own path. Our attempts to tame it was repeatedly fruitless and once we came to this realization, the creative flow surged forward with immense force, so much so that sometimes it felt like the songs wrote themselves. All the songs on 'Drif' have their own stories. They have each their place and sense of belonging, with inspiration not only from Northern Europe, but from the ancient great civilizations.”
