ALCEST Streams “Délivrance” Song Online

Monday, 6th January 2014

French shoegaze/atmospheric rock/metal outfit ALCEST are streaming “Délivrance,” a song from their forthcoming new album Shelter, which is due January 21, 2014.

The album will feature guest appearances from SLOWDIVE’s Neil Halstead (lead vocals on the song “Away”), Sweden’s PROMISE AND THE MONSTER’s Billie Lindahl and AMIINA’s strings sections. The album was recorded at Sundlaugin Studio, Iceland, with SIGUR ROS producer Birgir Jón Birgisson who masterfully gave Shelter its light and ethereal sound.

Conceptually, the title of the album Shelter says it all. The record is about the concept of shelter as a safe place that allows everybody to escape reality for an instant, to reunite with what we really are, deep down. (Mainman) Neige’s own shelter turned out to be the sea, as well as the tracks of this album, all inspired by and dedicated to it.

1. Wings
2. Opale
3. La Nuit Marche Avec Moi
4. Voix Sereines
5. L’Eveil Des Muses
