The song is taken from the group’s album Tomorrow, In A Year which was commissioned by the Danish performance crew Hotel Pro Forma.
The project is based on Darwin’s famous and controversial On The Origin Of Species and challenges the convention of a standard opera. Adding techno is definitely a step in the right direction in that regard.
The single will be out December 6th both digitally and limited edition vinyl. In the meantime, check out The Knife’s mystifying “Silent Shout: An Audio and Visual Experience” right here.
