Listen: Godspeed You! Black Emperor releases a new song

Godspeed! You Black Emperor are going to drop their next album Luciferian Towers on September 22

Godspeed You! Black Emperor has released the song 'Undoing a Luciferian Towers', the opening track from their upcoming album.

The song is exactly what you would expect from the acclaimed post-rock stars. Apparently, when you listen to the song, you should imagine the following: "look at that fucking skyline! big lazy money writ in dull marble obelisks! imagine all those buildings much later on, hollowed out and stripped bare of wires and glass, listen- the wind is whistling through all 3,000 of its burning window-holes!"

Since the theme is the end of the corporate world, here is another suggestion: Imagine you are walking through Dublin. You hear the squeals of the seagulls echoing through the heavy mist. You see that the convention centre is just a mess of broken glass and rubble. You pass by the Luas lines and see that the renovations and construction will never be finished (no changes there). Then you see it, Grafton street with slightly less tourists... This is truly the apocalypse.

Now that you have that image in mind, listen to the song and sink into the rubble.
