Blonde Redhead have shared a new song “Before,” which is the third single to be released from their upcoming album Sit Down for Dinner. This LP, which is their first new studio album in nine years, is due out September 29 via section1. Listen to “Before” below, followed by previously announced tour dates.

“Before,” is one of the more sonically playful tracks on the album featuring stacked vocals by Kazu Makino. It was written around the idea of reincarnation, narrated from a perspective of a child who supposedly knows all. Of the track, Makino says in a press release: “Some children seem quite knowing as if they remember their past lives… or at least that’s the impression I get. The song is a sort of celebration of that kind of quality in a young person.”

Sit Down for Dinner was written and recorded over a five-year period in New York City, Upstate New York, Milan, and Tuscany.

Blonde Redhead previously released the songs “Melody Experiment,” which was featured on our Songs of the Week, and “Snowman” which was also featured on our Songs of the Week.
