Only a few more weeks until The Knife release their new album, entitled ‘Shaking The Habitual‘, on the 8th of April. I for one cannot wait for the album. A recent Guardian article details the background to the new album, and the new direction of the band following the different projects pursued by the brother and sister bandmates of Olof and Karin Derijer Andersson.
As mentioned in a previous bog post it is worth checking out the music the two have made since they released the previous Knife album (2006’s Silent Shout), including the beautifully crafted electronic opera ‘Tomorrow, In A Year‘ with Planningtorock and Mt Sims, and the outstanding Fever Ray album by Karin. Two singles with videos from ‘Shaking The Habitual’ have so far been released, including ‘Full Of Fire’ linked below and ‘Tooth For An Eye‘.
