We’re less than a month away from the release of AL-‘AN ! الآن (And your night is your shadow — a fairy-tale piece of land to make our dreams), the new album from French outfit Oiseaux-Tempête. Following their previously shared singles, the poignant and compelling ‘Carnaval feat Mondkopf’ and more recently the wonderful and ethereal ‘I Don’t Know, What Or Why (Mish Aaref Eish W Leish)’ featuring Tamer Abu Ghazaleh, one hardly needs further convincing that their album is one not to be missed. In anticipation of the album’s release, Oiseaux-Tempête are offering a new track, ‘Through The Speech Of Stars’. Clocking in at nearly eighteen minutes, ‘Through The Speech Of Stars’ is an absolute opus of a song, with guest contributions from G.W. Sok (The Ex, Cannibales & Vahinés) and Gareth Davis and featuring a poem by Mahmoud Darwich.

AL-‘AN ! الآن (And your night is your shadow — a fairy-tale piece of land to make our dreams) is out on April 14th via Sub Rosa.

Oiseaux-Tempête to close trilogy with new album AL-‘AN !

Oiseaux-Tempête - AL-'AN !French outfit Oiseaux-Tempête, the core duo of Frédéric D. Oberland and Stéphane Pigneul, are set to release their new album AL-‘AN ! الآن (And your night is your shadow — a fairy-tale piece of land to make our dreams) next month. AL-‘AN ! , which means Now! in Arabic, is the third and last part of a trilogy that includes their 2013 self-titled album and 2015’s ÜTOPIYA?. The album was recorded last year between Beirut and France, with a slew of guests.
With this record, the pair “have achieved a far more complex work, richer in texture, the intertwining of acoustic elements with electronica, roaming and shaking the foundations of this almost labyrinthian personal opus of an album”, describes the press release. “As ever, the group realising both the immersive and also the total physicality on the record.”

AL-‘AN ! الآن (And your night is your shadow — a fairy-tale piece of land to make our dreams) is out on March 31st April 14th via Sub Rosa and Oiseaux-Tempête are offering a taste from it with the poignant and compelling ‘Carnaval feat Mondkopf’. Listen to it now.
