Long-time SoundCloud users The Knife are at it again with quite a monumental new album called Tomorrow, In A Year featuring Mt. Zims and Planningtorock. You can stream the full album – actually the studio version of the opera – on SoundCloud and make sure to show our favorite Swedes some love.
From their website:
Commissioned by Danish performance group Hotel Pro Forma to write the music for their opera based on Charles Darwin and his book ‘On the Origin of the Species’, The Knife decided to make this a collaborative process, working with artists Mt. Sims and Planningtorock for the first time, to capture the huge width of the Darwin and evolution theme. They extensively researched Darwin related literature and articles, with Olof attending a field recording workshop in the Amazon to find inspiration and to record sounds.
The album is out on March 1st and you can place your pre-orders here.
