Alabaster DePlume has released a new single, ‘Salty Road Dogs Victory Anthem’, via International Anthem. Featuring Rozi Plain on bass, Momoko Gill on drums, and Conrad Singh on guitar, the track marks the composer’s first new music since the release of GOLD last year. Check it out below.
“Even this very second, passing your eyes over these words, is a victory,” DePlume reflected in a statement about the song. “Breathing, you are victorious. Childishly standing with my flag and my anthem of ‘I’m alive’ I’m victorious. See inside, how you have your own permission, to be. Celebrated or not by others, in one moment, always, or never. You know you are here and you know this is a victory. We can always be more ourselves, and we can always be less so. But there is no ceremony we must wait for, no test, no judgement, before we can sing our victory anthem.”
‘Salty Road Dogs Victory Anthem’ will be available as a 7” flexi disc on May 19, with artwork from Raimund Wongand, and will be accompanied by a digital-only B-side called ‘Child Playing in the Forbidden Ruins’.
