Kasabian Announces New Album “The Alchemist's Euphoria”, Shares New Song “SCRIPTVRE”
- British rock band Kasabian announced their seventh studio album “The Alchemist's Euphoria” would be released on August 5, 2022.
It is their first album after the departure of former frontman Tom Meighan. Also, the album their first LP in five years since the 2017 album “For Crying Out Loud”.
From the album, the band released a new song “SCRIPTVRE” along with a music video
The track was written by Sergio Pizzorno. Produced by Fraser T. Smith and Sergio Pizzorno. The accompanying video was directed by Rawtape.
The band frontman Serge Pizzorno told Rolling Stone UK about the song., “With attention spans and the world being what is, I was really interested in making these expansive and really interesting sonic tracks, but instead of being fifteen minutes long, condensing that into four minutes. There's an expansive mental trip, but it's over pretty quickly.”
- He continued, “There's something about the way we listen to music now, I was just on that vibe of using that as a template. I wanted SCRIPTVRE to have an empowered start where it feels like the start of a dystopian gameshow like Battle Royale, but suddenly it cuts to a euphoric hands-in-the-air breakdown and although you get an aggressive start it takes you on a sideways trip into this soulful euphoria which is really unique.”
He added, “The sentiment behind it is like rewriting your own story. In our heads we have a construction of who we think we are, but it's turning that on its head. You wake up and suddenly decide to go against all the things you think you are.”
