Swans have shared a short snippet of an ominous new song in the works.
The short clip reveals a foreboding electronic undertone in their first taste of new music since 2016's The Glowing Man. The caption reads, "underbelly of new Swans song in process...have since orchestrated. now somewhat operatic/cinematic..."
In 2017 Swans released the remastered edition of their 1995 The Great Annihilator album.
Swans are currently fundraising for the new album, after vocalist Michael Gira recruited a new band, "Some time ago, when I made the decision to disband the most recent line up of Swans, I did so not only with trepidation, but also with a great measure of sadness. This, after all, was the longest lasting grouping of core musicians in the 35 year plus history of Swans, and we made some great work. We were (and remain) friends and collaborated seamlessly as an ensemble. However, a too-comfortable familiarity had taken hold and none of us could see the music surprising us further, so we ditched it, at least for the time being."
