In addition to acoustic guitars and pure male and female vocals, the album features bowed lyre, french horn and ukulele!
Kruunu will be released on February 26th via Inverse Records.
Mustan Kuun Lapset’s seventh album Kruunu is the band’s first fully acoustic recording. It is also the band’s first production with an international group of singers and musicians.
The album’s first single, Matkalainen (The Traveler) is a modern folk tale of Death that wanders from house to house in search of the weak and tired. At the same time, it is also a story of selfish fear of death; not from the narrator’s point of view, but from the fear that the dearest person will go first. No matter how much we achieve in life, death will eventually take everything.
