Michael Gira and company rip it up for more than two hours on their latest album.
Swans will release To Be Kind next week, and following early previews ‘A Little God In My Hands’ and ‘Oxygen’, you can listen to it now via NPR.
To Be Kind features guest appearances from St. Vincent, Cold Specks, Little Annie and more, with a good portion of the material developed live during Swans’ 2012 and 2013 tours. It is due out May 13 via Gira’s Young God label and Mute worldwide on triple vinyl, double CD and a deluxe CD version that comes with a live DVD.
FACT’s Maya Kalev recently spoke with Gira about Gustav Klimt, Fela Kuti and… tantric sex — read that interview now. Swans play this year’s Supersonic Festival.
