Melody’s Echo Chamber has shared a new single, ‘Alma’, lifted from her upcoming third album Emotional Eternal. The track arrives with a music video directed by Hyoyon Paik (Chloë), who also helmed the visual for lead cut ‘Looking Backward’. Check it out below.
“To me this song is a butterfly,” Melody Prochet remarked in a statement. “It feels more like a little poem to life than a song; it was the first song to arise from the echoes of silence since Bon Voyage. I think I recorded the emotion of that kind of spiritual experience of the essential yet heart-breaking separation from the pure love bubble to the world of others.”
She continued: “We recorded ‘Alma’ in Swahn’s studio in Stockholm again; I remember we gave special attention to the groove, to give it a swing and emphasis on the light side, with a minor sound of danger in the veil of the mist somewhere. Johan Holmegaard played drums, Gustav Estjes played the piano and little velvet flute; Josephin Runsteen created transcending strings and noises directed by Reine and Swahn.”
Emotional Eternal is out April 29 via Domino. Along with ‘Alma’ and ‘Looking Backward’, it includes the previously released single ‘Personal Message’.
