Ahead of the release of their imminent album ‘Sit Down For Dinner’ this Friday (via section1), Blonde Redhead have today put out two new singles: ‘Sit Down For Dinner Pt. I’ and ‘Sit Down For Dinner Pt. II’. The pair come accompanied by a short film directed by longtime collaborator Sebastian Mlynarski, which collages historial news clips with footage of the band.
Speaking about the releases, Blonde Redhead’s Kazu Makino has said: “‘Sit Down for Dinner’ is written like a journal and I suppose it’s confessional. ‘Part 1’ starts with me living on a remote island and contemplating what to do. ‘Part 2’ is me writing to my mother and father alongside inspiration from Ms. [Joan] Didion’s writing. It touches on death and destiny and how we move through our lives without knowing how and when the end will come (with no pity). I’m excited by the way I was able to put down my rather terrifying thoughts on top of ‘uplifting’ music. You would never guess what I’m singing about.”
