Swans have revealed new song ‘A Little God In My Hands.’ See above to hear the song now.
‘A Little God In My Hands’ is the first song to be taken from Swans’ forthcoming album ‘To Be Kind’, which will be released on May 12. St Vincent‘s Annie Clark provides backing vocals on the album and there will also be appearances from Cold Sparks, Little Annie and Bill Rieflin.
‘To Be Kind’ is produced by Swans’ Michael Gira and has a run time of over two hours. The album will be released as a triple vinyl album, a double CD, and a 2XCD Deluxe Edition that will include a live DVD. It will also be available digitally.
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’.
