Swans' New Song "Mother of the World" Available to Stream

Swans released a new ten-minute track, “Mother of the World,” which is now streaming on NPR. The song is one of the many longer tracks on their upcoming album The Seer. Consequence of Sound reports that Swans founding member Michael Gira described the new record as a “culmination of every previous Swans album as well as any other music I’ve ever made, been involved in or imagined.”

The Seer, out Aug. 28 via Gira’s own Young God Records, features collaborations with Yeah Yeah Yeahs’ Karen O, Akron/Family and Low’s Alan Sparhawk and Mimi Parker. The 2-CD/3-LP album can be pre-ordered here.
