Explosions in the Sky Announce New Album ‘End’, Share New Single

    Explosions in the Sky have announced their first studio album in seven years. The follow-up to 2016’s The Wilderness is called End, and it arrives September 15 via Temporary Residence. They’ve also shared the opening track, ‘Ten Billion People’. Check it out and find the album cover, tracklist, and the band’s upcoming tour dates below.

    Despite the album’s title, a press release assures that End will not be Explosions in the Sky’s last LP. It follows their soundtrack for the PBS documentary Big Bend: The Wild Frontier of Texas, which came out in 2021.

    “Our starting point was the concept of an ending – death, or the end of a friendship or relationship,” the band said in a statement. “Every song comes from a story, or an idea one of us has had that we’ve all expanded on and made its own world. Maybe it’s our nature, but we kept feeling that the album title was ultimately open to a lot more interpretation – the end of a thing or a time can mean a stop, but it can also mean a beginning, and what happens after one thing ends might pale in comparison to what it becomes next.”
