Zeal & Ardor announce self-titled album, drop new single Bow
Emily Carter

Zeal & Ardor have announced details of a brand-new album – and given it the self-titled treatment, signifying an extra level of importance…

"With the self-titled record, we have arrived at where I imagined this project should sound like," explains Manuel Gagneux. "It’s the longest we’ve worked on a single record and I believe it shows.

"The most important thing for an album of ours to do is transport you instantly into our mood, our world. Even though this might not be the one you might expect from us, this record certainly delivers on that front. We had time to hone in to what we think makes us interesting and what sounds we would like to explore through this we have found our home.

"Home is burning.

"Welcome home."

Zeal & Ardor – the album – is due out on February 11 next year via MVKA.

Listen to new single Bow below – which Manuel says "takes out established musical themes and places them into a completely different background. It’s an amalgam of things bestowing bad luck demanding you to join it."
