Godspeed You! Black Emperor secretly released their new album in almost a decade, Allelujah! Don’t Bend! Ascend!, secretly a few days ago with an official release date of October 15th in Europe and 16th everywhere else. When I heard the news I began to writhe in excitement. For those who cannot wait or for those unfortunate enough to attend one of their shows to pick up a copy, someone has upload the fifty minute album to YouTube. The track listing for the effort is as follows:
The vinyl edition has a slightly different order and are packaged differently. The CD version contains all four tracks while the vinyl pressing is packaged with a 12″ containing the longer tracks “Mladic” and “We Drift Like Worried Fire” and a 7″ containing the two shorter tracks. Just so you know whenever you decide to purchase this thing.
