Enigmatic and eccentric world music collective Heilung have announced the details of their upcoming new album 'Drif'!
Heiling explain the album's name "Drif" in their own words: "'Drif' means 'gathering'. A throng of people, a horde, a crowd, a pack. In symbiosis with the album title, Drif consists of a flock, a collection, a gathering, a collage of songs, that much like little flames were seeking towards each other, to join, to bond, to create, and be greater together. This album has very clearly dictated its own path. Our attempts to tame it was repeatedly fruitless and once we came to this realization, the creative flow surged forward with immense force. So much so that sometimes it felt like the songs wrote themselves. All the songs on Drif have their own stories. They have each their place and sense of belonging, with inspiration not only from Northern Europe, but from the ancient great civilisations".
The album is set for worldwide release on August 19, 2022 via Season of Mist.
The brand new single "Anoana", which is accompanied by a magical new music video, will be released soon.
