King Gizzard and the Lizard Wizard recently announced their next album, The Silver Cord, which is due for release on October 27, in both original and extended versions. (The extended version is a double album, the original is one LP.) Today they’ve shared the first new music from the new album(s), “Theia/The Silver Cord/Set.” Check out the new video below.
“The first version’s really condensed, trimming all the fat,” explains Mackenzie. “And on the second version, that first song, ‘Theia’, is 20 minutes long. It’s the ‘everything’ version – those seven songs you’ve already heard on the first version, but with a whole lot of other shit we record while making it. It’s for the Gizz-heads. I love Donna Summer’s records with Giorgio Moroder, and I’d never listen to the short versions now – I’m one of those people who wants to hear the whole thing. We’re testing the boundaries of people’s attention spans when it comes to listening to music, perhaps – but I’m heavily interested in destroying such concepts.”
The Silver Cord follows PetroDragonic Apocalypse from earlier this year.
