ODESZA Releases New Single After It Leaks
"HIGHER GROUND (feat. Naomi Wild)" [listen here]
World Tour Selling Out Fast [buy tickets]
Celebrated electronic duo ODESZA (Harrison Mills, Clayton Knight) have rushed out the release of new single "Higher Ground (feat. Naomi Wild)" after it was leaked. The song is off their highly anticipated third album, 'A Moment Apart', to be released September 8th on Counter Records (Ninja Tune imprint). The track shows off the ODESZA signature of dynamic chord progressions that open into sweeping cinematic soundscapes, punctuated by ecstatic, thumping percussion.
"'Higher Ground' came together in a special way for us," say Mills and Knight. "We were on a writing trip out in Lake Chelan, WA when we first heard Naomi's voice. We started adding rhythm and chords and everything just fell into place. It was one of those rare moments where the song felt like it wrote itself. This is one of our favorite tracks off the album and we're excited to share it with you."
Regarding the early release, Mills and Knight add, "We saw the song leaked yesterday, so we chose to release it as quickly as possible and let everyone hear it."
'A Moment Apart' represents ODESZA's growth, delivering a more mature sound through weighted atmospheres, shimmering synth lines and familiar feelings of nostalgia, optimism and hope. Vocal performances include Leon Bridges, Regina Spektor and RY X, creating an eclectic mix and showcasing the dynamic range ODESZA is known for.
Previously released tracks from ODESZA's forthcoming LP 'A Moment Apart' have received early praise from Pitchfork, Complex, NPR Music, Billboard and Vice Thump, who call the record an "electronic epic".
