Earlier this year, the band announced that they would be collaborating with the art group Ful to set up an “anti-national cabaret” called ‘Europa Europa’ which focuses on Sweden and the EU’s immigration policies.
The duo have written new music for the project, which will premier in Almedalen, Sweden on July 1.
The track, titled, ‘För Alla Namn Vi Inte Får Använda’ is accompanied by a video, which as Pitchfork reports, shows a group of men and women taking part in a dance choreographed by Dom Dugliga known as the “political Macarena”.
According to the video description, the song aims to “praise all those hundreds of thousands of people who defy the cameras, the deadly waters, the barbed wire, the violence and the compact political resistance, and make it across the external and internal borders of Europe every year”.
Performances of ‘Europa Europa’ will be free to all visitors. In addition to the Knife (who are listed as “the house band”), the cabaret stars Bahareh Razekh Ahmadi, Ellen Nyman, Maya Hald, and Rani Nair.
The duo released their fourth album ‘Shaking The Habitual’ in 2013.
