Hercules & Love Affair are back! Just in time for the weather to turn a bit sunnier! PLEASE. We’re beginning you, Hercules. Bring us something happy in these dark times. Their new album, In Amber, is due out June 17 on Skint/BMG and it is Andy Butler’s first Hercules album in five years.
The announcement comes alongside lead track + official video: “Grace”. The beautiful, strikingly contemplative “Grace”, with vocals by Butler and Icelandic chanteuse Elin Ey, is almost a communion with the inevitability of death, a prayer-like moment of transcendence written, Butler says,
“to allow myself more peace to be felt while living”.
We are very into that mantra. Check out the brand new video after the jump!
