Listen to Midlake’s dreamy new song, “Provider”

on September 20, 2013, 12:27pm


Midlake will issue their fourth album, Antiphon, on November 5th via ATO. The follow-up to 2011’s The Courage of Others also marks the band’s first record since the departure of former frontman Tim Smith last year. We’ve already heard the chugging title track, and now comes a dreamy, lushly-layered rocker titled “Provider”. Listen below.

“Provider was the first song to take shape on the new album,” guitarist Eric Pulido told NPR. “It’s where our ideas and growing pains were first flushed-out in forming a communal sound and vision. Although we knew that we weren’t anywhere near seeing a light at the end of the tunnel, that was when we first knew one existed!”

Antiphon Tracklist:
01. Antiphon
02. Provider
03. The Old And The Young
04. It’s Going Down
05. Vale
06. Aurora Gone
07. Ages
08. This Weight
09. Corruption
10. Provider Reprise
