Goed nieuws voor de Leprous-fans. De Noorse creatievelingen brengen op 27 augustus 2021 hun nieuwe album Aphelion uit via InsideOutMusic. De opvolger van Pitfalls werd opnieuw gemixt door Adam Noble (Placebo, Biffy Clyro, Nothing But Thieves,) en gemasterd door Robin Schmidt (The 1975, Placebo, The Gaslight Anthem).
Frontman Einar Solberg en zijn indrukwekkende stembanden laten het volgende weten:
We had no plans to start with a new album, then came Covid. “Aphelion” is a very different album. It’s intuitive and spontaneous. We’ve experimented with many completely different ways of writing music and explored new ways to work. There has been no room for overthinking, exaggerated perfectionism or carefully planned songs. I believe this is one of the strengths of this album. It feels alive, it feels free and it does not come across as too calculated.
The album was recorded in three different studios, and a few of the songs were actually recorded in all three studios, Ghost Ward Studios, Ocean Sound Recordings and Cederberg Studios.
The aphelion is the point in the orbit of an object where it is farthest from the sun, and it has a symbolic value which I will leave to your own interpretation.
