Listen To Enter Shikari’s Huge New Song, THE GREAT UNKNOWN

Enter Shikari have dropped another new track from their upcoming album Nothing Is True & Everything Is Possible.

Enter Shikaris highly-anticipated new album Nothing Is True & Everything Is Possible is just around the corner now, and following the release of { The Dreamer’s Hotel }, The King and T.I.N.A., the band have just unveiled another new track from the record. 

Their latest effort, THE GREAT UNKNOWN, opens up the entire album, and clearly sets the precedent for the genre-defying music that will follow it. Possibility is the central theme of the album, lyrically, but it also is musically, too,” frontman Rou Reynolds tells Kerrang! of the sound of album number six. We’ve pushed further and asked ourselves, Where can we go? Let’s fucking go there!’

One track is a symphonic orchestral piece, but then there are other tracks that wouldn’t sound out of place on our first album, [2007’s] Take To The Skies. I think one thing about this album that’s slightly different is that we set out to make something that encapsulates everything that Shikari have done. This album is more broad, and there’s more confidence in the songwriting. Plus, I produced it, so it gave us more attention to detail. There are more hours that have been put into this album than any other – a lot more sweat, toil, and crippling indecision!”

Notably, Rou also produced Nothing Is True & Everything Is Possible himself, explaining of his reasoning behind taking on this extra workload: It just got to the point where it wasn’t even a question. I’ve learned so much about production, and co-producing the last one was a confidence boost. Also, you wouldn’t say to a mum, Why did you decide to bring up your kid?’ (laughs). As a songwriter, you’ve birthed the kid, and then to have someone else bring it up would be unthinkable! It was like, There’s no way I can let someone else in now.’ There’s a lot of depth to what we do, and it requires a real dedication that I just wouldn’t feel comfortable asking from anyone else.”
