Rodrigo y Gabriela have unveiled their new song, “Terracentric,” today, with a performance video showcasing the acoustic rock maestros’ fresh approach to the studio for their eagerly awaited new album, Mettavolution, out April 26 on ATO Records. Layered with slide guitar and shimmering effects over pounding beats, “Terracentric” is a prime example of the power displayed on the Dave Sardy-produced album. The song’s arrival was heralded earlier today via Billboard.
“Sometimes we need to be self centered in order to be the best version of ourselves for us and for others,” Rod and Gab told Billboard. “Meditation is a good example of an individual practice that in fact is the most compassionate action we can do for everyone. Clearing the mind is not only for your own benefit but for the benefit of all living beings. ‘Terracentric’ is an invitation to look inward, to be a little bit ‘selfish’ for a minute and do what you can for your own sake. If we all did the same this world would be a very different one. ‘Terracentric’ is the connection with this earth. Reconnecting with the so called reality of our human existence.”
“Terracentric” follows the release of the album’s first song, the title track “Mettavolution.” That song was the #1 most added track at Triple A radio. Rodrigo y Gabriela performed “Mettavolution” on Jimmy Kimmel Live!and features dance choreography by David Byrne collaborator Annie-B Parson. METTAVOLUTION is available for pre-order now.
