The Antlers have announced « Green To Gold », their first new album in seven years – you can listen to their new track « Solstice » below.
The duo are gearing up to release their first LP since 2014’s Familiars, with ‘Green To Gold’ set to be released on March 26 via Transgressive.
Conceived and written almost entirely in the morning hours, ‘Green To Gold’ is, as singer-songwriter Peter Silberman puts it, « the first album I’ve made that has no concerns. I set out to make music for the Sundays in the morning ».
« Most of the songs on ‘Green To Gold’ are the result of conversations with my friends and my partner. It is less ambiguous about who is talking and who is listening, » he added, explaining that the « change in tone is the result of getting older. « .
« It doesn’t make sense for me to try to harness the same energy as 10 or 15 years ago, because I continue to grow as a person, as I’m sure our audience does too. ‘Green To Gold’ is about this idea of gradual change. » Silberman continued.
« People change over time, struggling to accept change in those they love, and struggling to change themselves. And yet, despite all our difficulties with this, nature somehow makes it look easy. »
The Antlers shared today (January 13) the video for the album song « Solstice, » which is a continuation of clips from their 2020 singles « Wheels Roll Home » and « It Is What It Is. »
Directed by Derrick Belcham and Emily Terndrup and with contemporary dancers Bobbi-Jene Smith and Dea Schraiber, you can watch the clip of « Solstice » – which is the third part of a 10-part visual series accompanying « Green To Gold » – above.
