Dead Can Dance, who have just wrapped their North American Tour for their first new album in 16 years, Anastasis, have just released a new track as a free download. “Opium” off the new album is free here for the small price of your email address.
Hailing from Australia, the world music fusion band was formed in 1981 by Lisa Gerrard and Brendan Perry. Their music has been described as, “an ambient style of world music that ‘constructed soundscapes of mesmerising grandeur and solemn beauty; African polyrhythms, Gaelic folk, Gregorian chant, Middle Eastern mantras, and art-rock’” (Ian McFarlane). You can stream their new full album, Anastasis, from their website.
