Wintersleep "Free Fall"

Wintersleep will release two new singles “Free Fall” and “Fading Out,” on September 6th, via Dine Alone Records. Originally released together on an exclusive 7” for Record Store Day, they will be available digitally worldwide for the first time.

 This September, Wintersleep will take to the road with tour dates throughout Europe.

Wintersleep on the two new singles:

“These are both songs we’re incredibly proud of recording and sharing with you. ‘Free Fall’ is a really exciting song for us. It taps into our love of progressive rock songwriting. We kept it off In the Land Of because it has such a strong identity on its own. ‘Fading Out’ is a sort of bridge from Great Detachment to In the Land Of era of songs, completed a bit too late to be included with Great Detachment but one of the first tracks we worked on when we started getting ready for In the Land Of. It’s interesting as it sort of gave In the Land Of a direction but ended up being a bit of an outlier. It has this neat guitar line that somehow ties in sonically with ‘Free Fall’ and feels like a really good accompanying track. Both songs centre around the idea of dissolution. ‘Fading Out’ starts as a sort of conversation about a dissolving relationship. ‘Free Fall’ around the idea of coming to terms with the death of a loved one, how to continue living with someone after they have passed, taking the relationship forward into the future.”

“Free Fall” and “Fading Out” mark the latest in a particularly fruitful release period for the band, having earlier this year put out their seventh full-length album In The Land Of – a longlisted album for the Polaris Music Prize. They also contributed a track, “The Twist”, to the recent Tiny Changes – A Celebration of The Midnight Organ Fight (Atlantic Records) release, a tribute to the late Frightened Rabbit singer Scott Hutchison, to whom the band had become close co-conspirators. They also worked with the award-winning director Christopher Mills on an incredible animated video for latest single “Forest Fire”, which you can watch here.
