Just hours after their announcement, The Knife have indeed uploaded new material to their SoundCloud account. The new track, "Colouring of Pigeons" is 11 minutes of chanting and musical bombast. Here is what SoundCloud had to say about the track:
The Knife, in collaboration with Mt. Sims and Planningtorock, are to release the studio version of the opera ‘Tomorrow, In A Year’, on the 1st March 2010.
Commissioned by Danish performance group Hotel Pro Forma to write the music for their opera based on Charles Darwin and his book ‘On the Origin of the Species’, The Knife decided to make this a collaborative process, working with artists Mt. Sims and Planningtorock for the first time, to capture the huge width of the Darwin and evolution theme.
