Swans share new song 'Oxygen' – listen
It's the second song lifted from band's forthcoming album 'To Be Kind'
'Oxygen' is the second song that has been revealed from the group's upcoming album, 'To Be Kind'. Although the track has been part of the band's live setlist for some time, this is the first time a studio recording has been revealed.
The new album, which is due to be released on May 12, follows 2013 release 'Not Here/Not Now' and has been produced by Swans' own Michael Gira. With a running time of over two hours, the album features appearances from St Vincent, Cold Specks, Little Annie and Bill Rieflin.
Earlier this year Swans unveiled the new song 'A Little God In My Hands' along with the album artwork by Bob Biggs, which features six paintings of babies heads.
Swans latest album was funded by fans following a campaign by Gira in 2013 which saw the frontman offer to write a personalised song for anybody willing to contribute money toward the recording. The majority of the money arrived primarily through the sale of live album 'Not Here/Not Now'.
