Ahead of its release on Friday (June 17), Hercules & Love Affair has shared the latest single from the upcoming LP In Amber. Following ‘Grace’, ‘Poisonous Storytelling’, and ‘One’, the new song is called ‘Dissociation’ and features vocals by Icelandic singer Elin Ey. Check it out below.
“‘Dissociation’ is a song that speaks to the fatigue I have felt brought on by the both the distortion of self and simultaneous fracturing of a coherent, shared, real-time experience of life that technology and specifically, the insidious personal interjection of social media into our live shas produced,” Andy Butler explained in a press release. “Sung by the delicately emotive voice of Elin Ey, the detachment and increasingly programmed self doubt and mistrust of what we see and read has created a collective need to ‘dissociate’ on some level. As I chime in the chorus, ‘I am here, I am here, reel me in, reel me in’, the possibility of human intervention seems possible and incredibly comforting.”
