Oh my. One of my all-time favorites, The Cinematic Orchestra just released a new single from their upcoming album ft. the LA artist Moses Sumney called “To Believe”. Enjoy the sad yet uplifting & beautiful solemnity below:
From Ninja Tune:
Original Cinematic Orchestra main-man Jason Swinscoe has now been joined on production duties by longtime friend and collaborator Dom Smith, and the result of this partnership is some of the most poised, ravishing music of this band’s stellar career.
In celebration of this new single and previewing forthcoming material from next years studio album the band embark on a Europe wide tour (Dates below).
The Cinematic Orchestra were formed by Jason Swinscoe in 1999 and have become one of the most respected British acts of the last 17 years. Possessed of an emotional gravitas that transcends genre, they have sold out the Royal Albert Hall (twice) as well as the Sydney Opera House, and played countless international festivals the world over. Their famous track, “To Build A Home”, has been streamed well in excess of 60 million times and “Arrival of the Birds” closed out the end credits of the Oscar winning Stephen Hawking biopic, “Theory Of Everything”.
