Norwegian Rock outfit Leprous have released their new album ‘Aphelion’ via InsideOutMusic. Read our review here. In celebration the band have shared the final track on the album, ‘Nighttime Disguise’.
The band comments about the release:
“Finally, we are happy to see “Aphelion” be released all over the world and share its full content with all of you. It’s an album with lots of interesting, unique stories behind the making and production of each song, being recorded in 3 different studios, over a longer time than usually…”
The music video for “Nighttime Disguise” is based on footage filmed and produced by the company Munin Live as part of the livestream project “Let’s write a song together”, which took place on January 2021 and for which the band was under the sights of video cameras 24/7 at the studio Ocean Sound Recordings to write this composition based on the vote of their fans.
Regarding this unique project the band comments:
“’Nighttime Disguise’ started as an experiment, where we let the fans join us virtually in the studio, and being able to vote for different parameters to write a song: Time signature(s), key(s), what kind of instruments, vocal style(s) and range, lyrical content etc. Our original plan was to have the result as a bonus track, but we ended up so happy with it that we couldn’t let it pass. Sometimes certain limitations force you to think differently and push you to new and more creative directions! This video shows a lot from the week of the songwriting, arrangement and production of ‘Nighttime Disguise’”.
Nighttime Disguise has it all. Edgy rock beginnings to emotive crooning where the vocals fly over lonesome piano into a swirling epic that gently builds and builds into a progressive masterpiece. Throw in some brass and even screaming and we have one hell of a track to close one hell of an album thats a testament to the bands skills and songwriting talent.
