BARONESS Stream New Song “Morningstar”

BARONESS Stream New Song "Morningstar"

Baroness, who are currently on the road and play the 89th Street Collective in Oklahoma City this evening, stream “Morningstar,” the third new song previewing music from the band’s eagerly-awaited new album, Purple (Dec. 18, Abraxan Hymns). Listen to it below.

With the release two weeks away, Baroness continues to share behind-the-scenes footage from the making of the ten-song album. The latest clip, titled “Tarbox Aliens” [Making Purple], focuses on the band’s decision to work with producer Dave Fridmann (The Flaming Lips, MGMT). “We could have gone with a more obvious, heavy producer,” explained drummer Sebastian Thomson, “but that just seems kinda, a little bit boring.John Baizley added, “Being that Baroness considers itself an artistic outlet, then we should try to approach each record as its own individual piece of art. He is a producer with a track record of unique records, and as I’ve said, very adventurous records, and that’s what I’ve come to expect out of this band and that’s what our audience has come to expect.” The previously released videos can be seen via BaronessYouTube page.

Pre-order packages for Purple, which feature instant downloads of “Morningstar,” “Shock Me” and “Chlorine & Wine” (official video here) as well as a limited edition colored vinyl version of the new album, two picture discs, t-shirts and other unique items are available now via this link.
