With their new album set to arrive in the coming months, Hercules & Love Affair have now unveiled the next cut to be lifted from their forthcoming full-length.
The new single 'Poisonous Storytelling' sees them team up with ANOHNI for the release, their first collaboration since 2008's 'Blind', and follows on from the previously shared lead track 'Grace' in previewing their new LP 'In Amber', which is out on the 17th June via BMG Records.
Speaking about the new offering, the group's Andy Butler said, "Poisonous Storytelling started as a song called “Sacral” - The music evoked sacred rites, but the word “Sacral” also speaks to one of the sources of our rootedness and stability.
"ANOHNI’s lyrics outline a constellation of systemic brokenness within global society. Addressing cultural narrators, newscasters, film makers and prophets, ANOHNI states, “We must be careful with new narratives, because everyone is rotted out from poisonous storytelling”."
