The much beloved Wintersleep have shared their first taste of new music in four years with the release of in the early part of this year with “Amerika”. The song comes from their upcoming album The Great Detachment, which was announced late last year after the band had just signed with Dine Alone Records. The title to the album is in reference to the band hitting somewhat of a reset button, having recently split with their longtime manager.

“We had a lot of time to slowly collect things. We weren’t rushed into it… there was nobody pressuring us to make a new album because we fired everybody, or we were out of our record contract. We’re doing this kind of fresh in a sense, so we felt like The Great Detachment was a good title.” 

A new beginning also features a return to the past, as the band headed back to Sonic Temple studio in Halifax, where they recorded their breakout, and Juno-winning, third album Welcome to the Night Sky. The new album was released last February, but until then watch this session in the Black Box where they performed the new single “Amerika”, “Oblivion”, and the indisputable classic “Weighty Ghost”.
