Big Thief's James Krivchenia has shared new track "The Science of Imaginary Solutions" as the second preview of his Blood Karaoke album.

Krivchenia announced Blood Karaoke earlier this month with the lead single "Emissaries of Creation", and today (29 March) he's released a second song from the record titled "The Science of Imaginary Solutions".

According to Stereogum, Krivchenia said of the new track, "Everytime I come back to the record, "The Science Of Imaginary Solutions" always actually shocks me a bit in a good way. It feels like a good representation of Blood Karaoke as a whole."

Blood Karaoke will follow Krivchenia's 2020 solo album A New Found Relaxation and Big Thief's February double album Dragon New Warm Mountain I Believe In You, and was made using small samples from YouTube videos found through online generators that Krivchenia "layered and collaged".

Krivchenia said of the album, "It was a very iterative, long process. Lots of editing and putting together little moments or 10 second chunks with lots of samples. The music was conceived to be a somewhat unbroken 40-minute-long composition and I think of the singles as excerpts."

"The Science of Imaginary Solutions" is out now. James Krivchenia's Blood Karaoke album will arrive via Reading Group on 15 April, and is available to pre-order now.
