Listen to black midi's Entrancing New Single, "Sweater"

The experimental London rock band black midi debuted a new single Wednesday, an 11-minute tune called “Sweater.” It was recorded during the same session as their 2019 breakout album, Schlagenheim, with Speedy Wunderground’s Dan Carey.

“Sweater” comes before an extensive stint of touring for black midi, which includes a sweeping European tour, a handful of Latin American tour dates and a few festival lineups, including Coachella, Governor’s Ball and Primavera Sound.

Listen to the entrancing single below, which periodically wavers between a slow, melodic meditation and a cacophonous burst of energetic playing. Then check out upcoming black midi tour dates. We named the band 2019’s best new artist.
