Lord Huron are releasing a new album, Vide Noir, on April 20 via Whispering Pines/Republic Records. Previously they shared two new interconnected songs from it, “Ancient Names (Part I)” and “Ancient Names (Part II)” (which collectively made our Songs of the Week list). They were followed by “Wait by the River.” Now they have shared another from the album, the slow-burner “When the Night Is Over.” Listen below, followed by the band’s upcoming tour dates.

Lord Huron’s singer/songwriter/producer/founder Ben Schneider had this to say about “When the Night Is Over” in a press release: “We wanted this song to feel something like a Raymond Chandler story, a desperate search through a rain-soaked, neon-lit city. The groove section in the middle is one of my favorite passages on the album.”

The rest of Vide Noir‘s songs can be streamed at various geo-locations across the U.S., Canada, and the UK, including national parks, hikes, beaches, and a volcano (more info can be found at www.followtheemeraldstar.com).

Vide Noir is the Los Angeles-based band’s third album and the follow-up to 2015’s Strange Trails. The album was written and recorded over the past two years at Lord Huron’s Los Angeles studio, Whispering Pines (which a press release describes as the band’s “informal clubhouse”). Dave Fridmann (The Flaming Lips/MGMT) mixed the album, which was engineered by Sonny DiPerri (Portugal. The Man, Animal Collective).

Schneider said in a previous press release that he found inspiration for the album by wandering around Los Angeles, his adopted home, at night. “My nighttime drives ranged all over the city-across the twinkling grid of the valley, into the creeping shadows of the foothills, through downtown’s neon canyons and way out to the darksome ocean,” he said. “I started imagining Vide Noir as an epic odyssey through the city, across dimensions, and out into the cosmos. A journey along the spectrum of human experience. A search for meaning amidst the cold indifference of The Universe.”

This is just beautiful. To my recollection, I haven’t heard a sweet song like this one recently and it was instant love with this song. Though this is the first song I am hearing from them, I am sure they do have other fantastic tracks.  google chrome keeps freezing
