Old Fire – the project of composer and producer John Mark Lapham – has shared a new song, ‘Corpus’, which features Bill Callahan. It’s the latest single from his sophomore album Voids, following ‘Dreamless’ with Adam Torres, ‘Don’t You Go’ (also featuring Callahan), and ‘Window Without A World’ with Julia Holter. Listen to ‘Corpus’ below.
“I’ve had some very different iterations of this track sitting around for over 10 years now,” Lapham said of the new single in a statement. “It began life as a dark, swampy dirge with distorted electric guitar loops and tribal drums. When Bill Callahan came into the picture, things changed considerably. It was initially called ‘Mephisto’ and was lyrically about a demon who wouldn’t get off your back. Bill brought it some very different imagery and as such, the whole track shifted to something else. I tried to imagine what Talk Talk would sound like produced by David Lynch and this is what I came up with.”
Voids is due for release on November 4 via Western Vinyl.
