We’re already looking at releases slated for 2024 with bated breath and with good reason, as Manu Delago has announced the release of a new album. Entitled Snow From Yesterday, the record saw the staggeringly talented Austrian percussionist and composer join forces with with vocal ensemble Mad About Lemon, the trio of Tyrolean singers Heidi Erler, Mimi Schmid and Anna Widauer. On the upcoming album, Delago continues to explore key current issues he’s spent much of his career addressing, particularly climate change. Snow From Yesterday is “about journeys and the stages of life that may change you, but also links you to others, in other times and other places”, as the press release describes. “It can at once tackle mammoth climate issues, while conveying moments of incredible intimacy.”
We’ll have to wait until February 2nd for the album to be out through One Little Independent Records, but Delago is already enticing us with the first single and album opener ‘Modern People’, a track reflecting on the technology we have today and considering its relevance in 100 years’ time. The single comes with an accompanying video and you can watch it below.
