Circles Around the Sun Announce New Album, Song, and Tour
Circles Around the Sun have revealed their next studio album, Language, will be coming this spring. Their fourth full-length record will dive deeper into extraterrestrial dance grooves that they started exploring on their 2020 self-titled release. Bassist Dan Horne says it has its own flavor.
“There’s a bit of a different arc to ‘Language,’” he says. “The first couple of songs are gonna put you in a certain headspace, and then the party happens later on.”
The band has announced a tour for the winter ahead of the album, and they’ve also given us a taste of it with a first single called “Outer Boroughs”.
“‘Outer Boroughs’ was initially composed when the track emerged from an impromptu jam in the studio around a four-chord sequence Adam was playing around with,” says guitarist John Lee Shannon. “Dan’s bassline is one of my favorites, and is unusual in that he initially heard the ‘1’ in a different place than intended, giving extra emphasis to the downbeat of the second measure.”
