Cigarettes After Sex announce new album Cry, share “Heavenly”: Stream

on August 28, 2019, 4:40pm

Dream pop purveyors Cigarettes After Sex have officially announced their sophomore album. Dubbed Cry, it’s due for arrival October 25th through Partisan Records.

Cry follows the Texas band’s acclaimed self-titled debut from 2017. Per a press statement, its nine tracks were recorded “during night time sessions in a mansion on the Spanish island of Mallorca,” a magical and cinematic place that ended up impacting the LP in a major way.

“The sound of this record is completely tied to the location for me,” frontman/guitarist Greg Gonzalez explained. “Ultimately, I view this record as a film. It was shot in this stunning, exotic location, and it stitches all these different characters and scenes together, but in the end is really about romance, beauty & sexuality. It’s a very personal telling of what those things mean to me.”

As an early snapshot of Cigarettes After Sex’s worldly travels, they’ve shared lead single “Heavenly”. The track is as divine as its name suggests, the kind of lulling, low-key listen that transports you to another time and place. According to Gonzalez, it was “inspired by the overwhelming beauty I felt watching an endless sunset on a secluded beach in Latvia one summer night.”

Hear “Heavenly” for yourself below. Update: A second single called “Falling in Love” has been shared.

Cry was self-produced and engineered by Gonzalez, with mixing handled by Craig Silvey (Arcade Fire, Julien Baker). Pre-orders have begun.
