Minneapolis electronic quintet POLIÇA have teamed up with European orchestral collective s t a r g a z e for the collaborative album Music For the Long Emergency, which is due out this Friday (February 16) via Totally Gross National Product/Transgressive. Previously we posted the video for “Agree.” Now they have shared another song from the album, “Speaking of a Ghost.” POLIÇA frontwoman Channy Leaneagh wrote the song for her son with bandmate Ryan Olson. Listen to it below

Leaneagh had this to say about the song in a press release: “‘Speaking of Ghost’ included a sample of mine and Ryan’s 10 month old son at the time playing drums. He was on the road with us for the first performance of the song in Berlin. It’s a note of memories from the first year of his life and it ends with a message to him for his future when I’m gone. He was my constant companion while writing this record: I’d write the lyrics by trying out different melodies and stories on him while I sang him to sleep: he was my silent audience…felt like singing for a ghost.”
