Gira arbeitet an neuen Songs für ein neues Swans Album, mit etwas verändertem Sound und mit anderem Lineup wenn ich das richtig verstehe.

Im Newsletter von Young God records spricht Michael Gira zunächst von seiner morgen beginnenden Solo Tour (deutsche Konzerte in Hamburg und Berlin) und dann von neuen Songs für das "next Swans Album" und weiteren Re-Releases:

Hello Folks,

Short note here to let you know that my Europe Solo Tour commences on February 6.
If you're interested, tour dates and ticket info here: https://younggodrecords.com/pages/tour-dates
I've been working on new songs, and I'll be performing those as well as some older material.
The new songs are the first steps on my way to formulating the next Swans album. They're quite heavy on the words - the longest narrative songs I've written. Still finding my way into them, but I think they're good. If you attend one of the shows, I hope they offer something worthwhile... I suspect that the next Swans album will be a variety of these songs, highly (and I hope, tastefully) orchestrated, and then perhaps in opposition some more atmospheric pieces which will draw on and extend the approach evidenced in the more "sfumato" moments on the last few Swans albums... That's a long way off, and a lot of work and thought involved before I embark on that next venture. In the meantime, I'll be doing a series of short Solo Tours, both in Europe and USA...

I've completed a new collection of short stories, written over the past year or so. It's called The Egg, and it's available here: https://younggodrecords.com/products/michael-gira-the-egg
The collection features some rather vivid and wonderful illustrations by Nicole Boitos. It's a limited edition. It can be found at the link or at my live shows... I thought for a while that this area of my mind was closed off forever, but as it happens, the spigot has opened up a bit and I hope to have more fiction in the near future...

Soundtracks for the Blind is finished and is in the pipeline. It's taken forever to figure out the packaging and to master it properly. It will be available as a 4xVinyl set, as well as a 3xCD (the 3rd CD is the long out of print Die Tur Ist Zu). Release for Soundtracks will be in May. Die Tur Ist Zu will also be available soon as a limited 3 sided vinyl release, the 4th side being an etched graphic. It will be available for Record Store Day, April 21st in North America (Mute to release at a later date).

Later in the year, we'll also be putting together a live Swans album of material from this recent, now past formidable line up. We did a great deal of live recordings. I'm still sifting through it...

And more Swans catalog rereleases of course along the way...

Much Love to You! - Michael Gira / Swans / Young God Records

Klingt, als dauert es noch ein Weilchen, aber ich bin sehr gespannt, wo es hin geht und es ist
schön, dass er jetzt schon Worte dazu verliert.
Und zwischendurch ein Live-Album vom alten Line-up ist auch nicht zu verkehrt.
