The New Spring presents new single ahead of album release in February.

“Gershwin’s Invisible Year” is the third single from The New Spring’s highly anticipated, ambitious album Wholly Wholly. The new single is the album’s opening cut and introduces the sound of the album to the audience. 

Listen here!

Bastian Kallesøe tells the story behind the song:

“There is a loose circular movement on the album. The young composer, Gershwin, is “born” on the album’s first song ‘Gershwin’s Invisible Year’. He then dies (and resurrects) on the final song, ‘Gershwin Wakes Up Singing’.

“I love Gershwin’s music and I consider him one of the musical geniuses of recent time. However, I don’t know that much about him as a person. I like to imagine him as a regular little boy who went to school, got bored, masturbated etc. - until he suddenly wakes up and starts to recognize his destiny. I generally believe more in destiny than free will.

“I like the idea of invisible years. Everyone can remember what it’s like to be a teenager, etc. and undergo visible transformations. But lots of big transformations are happening all the time and the majority of them are invisible. Most of our lives is in fact invisible.”

In addition to this The New Spring is going on a DK tour and will place at following places.

20.04 - TAPE, Aarhus - http://bit.ly/tnstape

28.04 - Studenterhus, Odense - http://bit.ly/tnsodense

04.05 - Konfus, Esbjerg - http://bit.ly/tnskonfus

05.05 - Harders, Svendborg - http://bit.ly/tnsharders

Wholly Wholly is Bastian's most ambitious album so far. The record, that is produced by Jens Ramon Murga, has been two years in the making and for the first time Bastian has recruited a full band for the recordings. The combination of their contribution and Bastian's still more impressive and characteristic songwriting makes for an experimental folk pop album full of strong and convincing melodies that aim to please as well as challenge the listener.
