Fever Ray has shared a new single, ‘Carbon Dioxide’, from their upcoming third album, ‘Radical Romantics’ – their first record in over five years.
It is Karin Dreijer’s second original single release of 2022, following last month’s ‘What They Call Us’, which is also set to feature on the ten-track LP. It will be released in full on March 10th via Rabid Records, succeeding 2009’s self-titled album and its 2017 follow-up, ‘Plunge’.
On the new track, the Swedish singer says: “‘Carbon Dioxide,’ a compound which, being defined by its bond with oxygen, seems to me like a neat chemical expression of the essential compassion that the conditions for life on our planet depend. Compassion and joy; happiness guarded against sentimentality by the absurd and the grotesque; the extra-everything of unconstrained Nature.”
