Colleen‘s “Hidden in the Current” is taken from her upcoming album, The Tunnel and the Clearing, out May 21 on Thrill Jockey Records.
Barcelona-based French multi-instrumentalist and vocalist Cécile Schott aka Colleen is readying the release of her new album. So far, we’ve heard the singles “Gazing at Taurus – Santa Eulalia” and “Implosion-Explosion,” the latter being featured in our Best Tracks of 2021 playlist. She has now unveiled “Hidden in the Current,” the celestial closing track off the record, which acts as both a climax and a personal revelation, as she sings “I finally woke up”.
“The song captures my awakening to a hard but inevitable truth, owning it, and realizing that ultimately, all life experiences – positive and negative, joyful and painful – are “hidden in the current / Where all things grow / Even on their own,” she stated.
The single comes with a video directed by animator Daniel Baretto. Watch below and pre-order the album via Bandcamp.
