King Gizzard and the Lizard Wizard have revealed a new single, ‘Magenta Mountain’.
It’s the second to come from their upcoming double album ‘Omnium Gatherum’, following up on 18-minute lead single ‘The Dripping Tap’.
‘Omnium Gatherum’ now has a release date – 22nd April – and follows up on 2021 albums ‘LW’ and ‘Butterfly 3000’. It’ll be the first the band recorded together since the pandemic.
The band’s Stu Mackenzie explains: “This recording session felt significant. Significant because it was the first time all six Gizzards had gotten together after an extraordinarily long time in lockdown. Significant because it produced the longest studio recording we’ve ever released. Significant because (I think) it’s going to change the way we write and record music – at least for a while… A turning point. A touchstone. I think we’re entering into our ‘jammy period’. It feels good.”
