Lost Horizons Share New Track “Cordelia” Featuring John Grant-

Taken From LP “In Quiet Moments” Due 26th February 2021 via Bella Union

Last month Lost Horizons announced news of their new album, In Quiet Moments, released 26th February 2021 via Bella Union, and shared a video for lead track ‘I Woke Up With An Open Heart’. Now the band share a very different track from the LP, a poignant and dreamlike collaboration with John Grant titled “Cordelia.

The captivating sounds of “Cordelia” will consume you. This magnificent soundscape is a marvel, the gorgeous dreamy atmosphere will devour you. Amongst this vivid world created in 7 minutes, the addition of Grant’s emotive vocal tones brings in this new stirring element. Lost Horizons have carefully created and captured an essence of affection, resolution, and realness. An expansive world enriched with heartfelt harmonies and expressive experimentation

Of the track Simon Raymonde of Lost Horizons says: “This was one of the last tracks recorded for the album, though it came from the ashes of one the first improv sessions Richie and I had. Listening back to what we started with, I jettisoned the drums and most of the guitars but salvaged a small part of it and turned it into something brand new. Then I had the amazing David Rothon -who I had seen play live with Marissa Nadler a few nights before – and long-time collaborator Fiona Brice add pedal steel and strings respectively. Sitting quietly in the studio with our spacey slice of instrumental swirl, I closed my eyes to imagine a voice.

While much of his recent work involves synths and crunchy beats, how he magnificently handles cinematic melancholy in his own work, and specifically in the Scott Walker Prom for the BBC, I knew my dear friend John Grant would nail this. I hoped he might enjoy the freedom of creating some melodic magic alongside elegant emotional lyrics. I sent him the piece, aware that he is always so incredibly busy, and tried to keep my expectations low, in case he had to turn it down, but to my utter and continuing delight he said yes and I’ll have to admit to shedding a tear or two when he sent me back the completed vocal a few weeks later.”

John Grant adds: “I really loved doing this track with Simon. I’d had the idea for this song for a long time and when he sent me the instrumental, I immediately thought: ‘CORDELIA’ – so happy to have found such a beautiful home for this track!”

Lost Horizons recently shared a remix of “I Woke Up With An Open heart” by On-U Sound founder and dub legend Adrian Sherwood. The remix is accompanied by a video created by Brighton visual artist “innerstrings” who worked with Lost Horizons on all of their 2017/18 touring doing live oil-based projections.
