Seth Glier Releases New Song “The Coronation”
- Grammy-nominated American singer-songwriter Seth Glier will release his upcoming sixth studio album “The Coronation” on August 20, 2021. It is his first album in four years.
From the album, he released the title track along with an animated music video. It was co-written and co-produced by Ryan Hommel and Seth Glier.
Seth Glier said of the song, “For most of my adult life, I've held the belief that humanity is right around the corner from something transformative. If we could only see that our separateness is an illusion, then a future of global cooperation and interdependence would be undeniable. As the coronavirus locked down the world, I felt this long-held belief inside of me becoming a reality right before my eyes. This song is a compassionate invitation to take inventory of our society, strip down the superficial, and see what is worth saving and what can be built back better.”
He explained of the video, “The Coronation” explores the death and rebirth of planet earth - hand drawn characters in the video are animals grappling with the new harsher reality of a dying planet, with the first signs of life and rebuilding in the first chorus. As the song and video progresses, the animals take more and more steps to reinvigorate the world; seeing each other again after being apart, showing compassion and love, and moving forward together with optimism.
- The new album comprises of 13-track, featuring guest appearances from Everett Bradley and Raye Zaragoza.
He worked with longtime collaborator Ryan Hommel, Bill Lefler and Alex Wong for the album.
“I knew at the onset that I wanted to work with many different people and producers on this record but I don't think I knew why until after finishing it,” he explained. “Being in collaboration is a constant reminder that our actions have profound effects on the subsequent actions of others and how powerful it is to be united in common cause. I think collaboration might be what makes 'The Coronation' a cohesive album. It's wildly diverse from song to song, and the making of it began to mirror a new world I wanted to live in.”
