We present the first full track in the form of a lyric video, entitled 'Old Heart Falls' from our new album – The Fall of Hearts due for release on the 20th May 2016 through Peaceville Records.
On the release of the first new song Jonas Renkse comments “A song with lush textures, distinct dynamics and a memorable chorus are the trademarks to some of the most beloved Katatonia songs. 'Old Heart Falls' substantiates all of those atttributes, but is not by any means defining the album as a whole. There is more to come..."
About the lyric video Anders Nyström adds "Knowing we didn’t want another ”font circus” with all these words and letters competing in olympic acrobatics, we decided to make it extremely simple but also very real... 30 years ago when we were active in the underground tape-trading scene, there were no computers around, so we had to write all our letters by hand, or when feeling extra motivated, we used a typewriter. I clearly remember writing letters on a typewriter with a ribbon directly to paper created a special feeling that no computer would ever emulate. So determined to bring back this feeling for a brief couple of minutes, we passed on our idea to our talented friend Lasse Hoile, who made sure this beautiful Royal typewriter served a final purpose before crawling all the way back to the start, returning to dust..."
Also on friday, april 1st, fans around the world who pre-order (or already pre-ordered) the new album via iTunes will get an instant download of the song as a gratification track.
