Newmoon Announces New Album “Temporary Light”, Shares New Song “Fading Phase”

It is their first body of work in five years since the 2019 album “Nothing Hurts Forever”.
The album comprises 8-track, produced by Thomas Valkiers. It is the first album after joining a new drummer Conor Dawson.
The new album features dreamy and ethereal sound with gentle melodies and catchy hooks to plush walls of guitars and pummeling drums.
The band lead singer Bert Cannaerts said of the album, “Thick layers of guitars always felt natural to us and are kind of our main thing. We wanted to explore some ideas that have been in the back of our mind ever since we started this band. As soon as we let go of trying to write a specific type of album, the songs grew organically and everything just clicked.”
- From the album, the band the first single called “Fading Phase” on October 25, 2023.
The track was written by Bert Cannaerts, Giel Torfs, Philippe Corthout, and Conor Dawson. Produced by Thomas Valkiers.
The accompanying music video was directed by Triptiek.
Bert Cannaerts said of the song, “While writing this album I got a new guitar”, singer-guitarist Bert Cannaerts explains, “It was an older Rickenbacker from the 90’s with loads of wear and tear on it. Definitely a guitar that already had a great life before it got into my hands. The main riff of ‘Fading Phase’ was the first thing I wrote on that guitar and the whole song just kind of wrote itself as soon as I had that riff. It was one of those magical moments where everything just falls into place.”
