According to the Dead Can Dance’s website, they’re working on a new album for 2012 and then will be touring to support the record later this year.
In typical fashion, the site’s pretty cryptic about any of the plans or dates. But they have been releasing downloads about once per month with four live tracks in each one.
The third one is available for download now at their site and features Saltarello (“topping the charts in 1462,” as Brendan Perry says in his introduction to the song), The Wind That Shakes the Barley, How Fortunate the Man with None and Dreams Made Flesh.
While this isn’t Dead Can Dance, per se, here’s a video from Brendan Perry’s appearance at Neumo’s in Seattle – recorded by my iPhone (which did a remarkable job with the sound, by the way)…
– My name is Jon Friesch, and I can’t wait to see Dead Can Dance in 2012.
