Pantha du Prince Shares New Single "Frau Im Mond, Sterne Laufen” And Live Show Stream Via Boiler Room
Following his video for "The Winter Hymn", today Pantha du Prince has shared “Frau Im Mond, Sterne Laufen” from his upcoming album as 'The Triad' (out 20th May). Take a listen to the track, whose title translates to “Woman In Moon, Stars Racing", above.
On the song’s conceptual genesis Weber explains:
This album is about concrete utopia: how does 'The Triad 'affect our direct interaction, and how can we have a better life in the moment and not in a future vision? I came to the conclusion that it's about social interaction with other human beings; otherwise we are just lost.
And the Fritz Lang movie Frau im Mond is basically about a concrete utopia as well. You have certain secret societies that control the world, and then you have the mad scientist who has the secret formula to a rocket engine.
But the funny thing is, for the premiere of the film they built a rocket, and this rocket model was then used as a real early rocket. And this is what I think happens a lot today, without the people recognizing.
'The Triad', the first Pantha du Prince solo album since 2010’s breakout 'Black Noise', is available to pre-order now from the Rough Trade Webstore where alternative album artwork prints are also available.
Last night, The Boiler Room broadcast Pantha du Prince’s performance at Radialsystem V in Berlin. The archive of that mesmerising performance is available to stream here.
