On June 21st, Alcest will release their highly anticipated new album, Les Chants De L'Aurore, via Nuclear Blast Records, wondrously illustrated by today's lead single L'Envol and its accompanying visual spectacle courtesy of French artist Yoann Lossel. Like its predecessors, Les Chants De L'Aurore is an introspective listen, one characterized as a learning lesson or an escape even, and L'Envol is an ethereal introduction.

Neige comments on the album:

"'L'Envol' is a musical return to the atmosphere of Alcest's first albums. I wrote this song after an inspiring trip to Corsica, where I met amazing people and was surrounded by some of the most unique landscapes I have ever seen. It is about escaping from earthly reality to join a flock of mythical birds flying through the known boundaries of our world. The song is accompanied by a music video created by the talented French artist Yoann Lossel, who also designed the album cover. For this first single release, we wanted the music, lyrics and visuals to be as coherent and immersive as possible. All the tracks on Les Chants de l'Aurore are very different from one another, but we thought this one would be a great introduction to the overall atmosphere and themes of the album."

Stream L'Envol below and stay tuned for pre-orders via Nuclear Blast.
