Palace Winter: New album out May 4. First single revealed today!

Palace Winter announce their forthcoming new album Nowadays which is set for release on May 4 via Tambourhinoceros (Efterklang, IRAH, August Rosenbaum).  Today the band reveals the LP’s first single “Take Shelter“.

LISTEN to “Take Shelter”

A big, crisp and sonically beautiful piano line introduces “Take Shelter” and adds a new element to the emotive and cinematic signature sound of the Australian/Danish duo. The track is a death ballad about grief, confronting death and the shelters we build for ourselves as a way of coping with loss. Palace Winter‘s Carl Coleman on “Take Shelter”:

“It started with that beat and Caspar’s piano riff which felt kinda urban and like a place we hadn’t really explored yet. Then that droney vocal melody just kinda popped straight into my head. I felt the urgency immediately and knew it was a keeper. Some songs are like pulling teeth but this one was like a light-bulb moment.”

Palace Winter are Copenhagen-based Australian Carl Coleman and Dane Caspar HesselagerNowadays is the follow-up to the duo’s 2016 debut Waiting For The World To Turn.  That album gained the band a dedicated fanbase around the world.

Like its predecessor, Nowadays was engineered, recorded, mixed and mastered by Hesselager.
