Warpaint’s sophomore album is a long time coming. It’s been over three years since the release of the band’s debut LP, The Fool, and while we’ve been told to expect a new full-length in early 2014, the band has kept relatively mum on the subject. But today brings a 30-second preview of a new song titled “Love Is To Die” , which soundtracks a commercial for Calvin Klein. Check it out below.
Update: The band has shared a teaser for a documentary, also titled Love Is To Die. According to the YouTube description, “Visionary director Chris Cunningham spent 2 years with Warpaint, filming and photographing as they made new music. In addition to capturing imagery he also reimagined the songs themselves, creating beautiful and exciting alternate versions to soundtrack the visuals. The resulting documentary is something that only could have come from this unique meld of talents. The teaser gives a little glimpse of what’s in store.”
The band will be touring the UK and Europe for most of Autumn before hitting Australia early next year. Check out their full docket here.
