The Old Ceremony’s new album Sprinter, a rich, haunting collection of southern gothic pop, is now available for pre-order on CD and LP. Lead track “Magic Hour” combines a noir melody with earworm lyrics that will come to you in your sleep.
Stream “Magic Hour” in the player below and get it as an instant download when you pre-order Sprinter on iTunes.
Produced by Mitch Easter (Let’s Active) with arrangement help from Chris Stamey (dB’s) and a shining guest appearance from R.E.M.’s Mike Mills on vocals and bass (“Fall Guy”, “Magic Hour”), this record proves that it takes a village – or more specifically, a humid southern town – to make an album.
