The Knife to release nine-minute-long single 'Full Of Fire' next week
Swedish electro duo's comeback single will be released on January 28
The Knife are set to make their comeback next week with a nine-minute-long single titled 'Full Of Fire'.
The track will be the first single off the Swedish electro duo's much anticipated third album 'Shaking The Habitual', which is released on April 8. According to Gorilla Vs Bear, the single will be released on January 28.
'Shaking The Habitual' is The Knife's first album since 2006's 'Silent Shout' and will feature a guest appearance from Shannon Funchess of Light Asylum. Since the release of 'Silent Shout', singer Karin Dreijer Andersson released one self-titled album as Fever Ray, in 2009.
In 2010 she and bandmate Olof Dreijer collaborated with Mt Sims and Planningtorock on the Charles Darwin-inspired opera 'Tomorrow, In A Year'.
Last week (January 18), the band added a second date at London's Roundhouse date to their forthcoming European tour after the first one sold out almost immediately.
