Morningstar is the third single off off Baroness’ eagerly-awaited new album, Purple (Dec. 18, Abraxan Hymns) is streaming now online. Listen here.
With the release two weeks away, Baroness continues to share behind-the-scenes footage from the making of the ten-song album. The latest clip, titled “Tarbox Aliens” [Making Purple] (https://youtu.be/YafDkIRwEU4), focuses on the band’s decision to work with producer Dave Fridmann (The Flaming Lips, MGMT). “We could have gone with a more obvious, heavy producer,” explained drummer Sebastian Thomson, “but that just seems kinda, a little bit boring.” John Baizley added, “Being that Baroness considers itself an artistic outlet, then we should try to approach each record as its own individual piece of art. He is a producer with a track record of unique records, and as I’ve said, very adventurous records, and that’s what I’ve come to expect out of this band and that’s what our audience has come to expect.” The previously released videos can be seen via Baroness’ YouTube page (www.youtube.com/baronessmusic).
