Lost Horizons is a new duo featuring former Cocteau Twins member (and Bella Union label head) Simon Raymonde and drummer Richie Thomas (who has played with The Jesus and Mary Chain, Felt, and Cocteau Twins). Their debut album, Ojalá, is due out November 3 via Bella Union. Previously Lost Horizons shared its first single, "The Places We've Been," which features guest vocals from Karen Peris of The Innocence Mission. Now here's another song from the album, "Frenzy, Fear," which features Hilang Child (aka singer/songwriter Ed Riman, a half-Welsh, half-Indonesian Londoner). Listen below.

Raymonde had this to say about the song in a statement: "'Frenzy, Fear' was recorded in January this year. I thought I was close to finishing the album and decided I wanted to do some ambient piano + guitar pieces for a possible bonus disc, to show a different side to Lost Horizons. Warren Ellis of the Bad Seeds/Dirty Three told me about this wonderful piano in a small studio just outside Brighton where I live, where he and Nick Cave work a lot, and I took two days there with no ideas or tunes, just improvising and recording everything, warts and all. When I got home and listened back, these seemed more like proper songs than just noodlings, so the minute I started imagining vocals I thought of Hilang Child (Ed Riman) as his voice is simply exquisite, and I knew he would get the vibe and the mood. What he did exceeded all my expectations though."

Ojalá is filled with guest vocalists, including Sharon Van Etten, Marissa Nadler, former Midlake frontman Tim Smith, Horse Thief's Cameron Neal, Liela Moss of The Duke Spirit and Ghostpoet, Beth Cannon, Hilang Child, Gemma Dunleavy, and Phil McDonnell. Ojalá is due out November 3 via Bella Union.
