The Bad Plus release new track, ‘Electric Face’

Long-running, genre-bending American jazz combo The Bad Plus released last year their eponymous album, marking their first release as a quartet, having played as a drums/bass/piano trio for more than two decades. They have now shared an unreleased track, ‘Electric Face’, from the same album sessions. Speaking about the track, bassist Reid Anderson comments:

“I wrote ‘Electric Face’ in Kingston, NY during the summer of 2021, while listening to a lot of science podcasts. When a caterpillar goes into the chrysalis and transforms into a moth, it basically dissolves and the structure is determined by an electrical pattern which is the guide that turns it from mush into a moth. There’s an electrical pattern in the face of the moth, and this is what inspired the song.”

The Bad Plus is out now through Edition Records
