New music from GoGo Penguin is always exciting news. The trio, who last year welcomed a new drummer to the fold and released an EP, Between Two Waves, have announced a new full-length album. Entitled Everything Is Going to Be OK, the effort arrives on April 14th through Sony Music/XXIM.
Alongside the announcement, GoGo Penguin have shared the first transcendent single, ‘Glimmerings’, a track inspired by British Professor Anil Seth’s book Being You. Bassist Nick Blacka comments:
“The word glimmerings stood out when I was reading a book by Anil Seth called ‘Being You’. The book is about the science of consciousness and in the Prologue, he talks about how ‘glimmerings of ideas began to emerge’. It felt like the perfect way to describe the process of thought and creativity. Glimmerings — one of the first songs we started on the new album – started from a small kernel on the synth and over time we added more and more layers until it became something a lot more complex. The idea behind the title is the very beginning, where there is only an idea and an intent to start with, but you have an aim and an idea, and you have to trust in the process.”
