Swans release exciting snippet of their new (and supposedly final) album The Glowing Man

Revered US noise-rockers have announced they will be releasing their final album on June 17th. This brooding two minute sample is all we’re getting for now, but it’s already garnering some hype.

The Glowing Man will be the band’s first release since 2014’s critically acclaimed To Be Kind.

Lead singer Gira has stated: “While working up material for this new album, I had a basic acoustic guitar version of the song and was stumped for words. For reasons unknown to me, the lyric I’d so long ago left in my typewriter in plain view at my living and rehearsal space (the latter of which Sonic Youth shared at the time) and which Thurston plucked for use with my happy permission, popped into my head and I thought ‘Why not?’”
