Manchester Orchestra have announced a new album, called The Valley Of Vision, which doubles as an album and virtual reality film and will drop in March.
The band dropped the album’s lead single, “Capital Karma,” along with the announcement.
The album is co-produced by singer Andy Hull and guitarist Robert McDowell. The Valley Of Vision also features contributions from Catherine Marks, Dan Hannon, Jamie Martens, Kyle Metcalfe, and Ethan Gruska, who also plays piano on “Capital Karma.”
Meanwhile, the virtual reality film was directed by Isaac Deitz. It will debut in a “worldwide watch party” on the band’s YouTube channel on March 9.
“Making The Valley Of Vision was an exciting idea of what the future could be for us in terms of how we create,” Hull says. “None of these songs were written with the band being in the same room in a live setting.”
“They were really like science experiments that started from the bottom and were added to gradually over time,” he added. “We’re intrigued by doing things the wrong way, or attempting things we haven’t done before and getting inspired by them.”
