Track Premiere: New from The Old Ceremony

Old Ceremony

Tarheel savants aim to seduce and philosophize on new album, yo…

By Blurt Staff

NC’s The Old Ceremony is prepping 6th album Sprinter, which their label Yep Roc quite astutely describes as “a rich, haunting collection of southern gothic pop.” Indeed! Lead track “Magic Hour” “combines a noir melody with earworm lyrics that will come to you in your sleep” and we have a special unveiling for you, the astute BLURT readership:

The record is the followup to 2012’s acclaimed Fairytales and Other Forms of Suicide and was produced by Tarheel legend Mitch Easter with arrangement help from Chris Stamey (dB’s). According to the band’s Django Haskins, “There’s a fine line between a philosopher and a seducer. This one definitely veers from side to side. Our friend Mike Mills contributed some wonderful high harmonies to this one. The intentional empty space and the slow swagger suggest a song looking for a movie, possibly in black-and-white. Either way, there will be excellent suits.”

You can get more details at the Yep Roc site as well as iTunes, so get crackin’, fans.
