It’s been three years since Rhine Gold, the criminally under-heard and underappreciated second album by Denmark’s Choir of Young Believers. Now they are back with a new single, “Face Melting,” and promise of a new album for release in late 2015.

Choir of Young Believers initially started out as a solo endeavor for Jannis Noya Makrigiannis, but grew to quite a collective for Rhine Gold. Apparently for their third album, which Makrigiannis is currently putting the finishing touches on, it’s returned to more of a solo affair. Whether the rest of the band contributed to the album or will still tour with Choir of Young Believers remains to be announced.

A press release says the upcoming third album is “inspired by the likes of Talk Talk, Enya, Sade, Dean Blunt, Frank Ocean, and early ‘90s Madonna.” “Face Melting” is seven minutes long and is kind of all over the place, a song that starts as a piano-backed slow burner but morphs more into a Matthew Dear-esque abstract dance track towards the end, so it’s not hard to imagine such disparate influences coalescing on the new album.

Check out “Face Melting” below, followed by some upcoming tour dates.

05.13 - London, UK @ ELGAR ROOM

05.14 - Brighton, UK @ THE GREAT ESCAPE
