What an incredible track to introduce to the world at the start of 2018! A Perfect Circle has released “Disillusioned” from their forthcoming album and the melodies and instrumentation in this one are utterly beautiful and serene, which tie in perfectly with the overall message in the lyrics. Listen to the song in the player here on .
“Disillusioned” stands in stark contrast to “The Doomed,” the first track released from the still untitled album. Where “The Doomed” felt “apocalyptic” (Rolling Stone) and the track’swas “eerie” and “intense” (Revolver), “Disillusioned” strikes a more optimistic tone, urging listeners to connect with one another once again.
Billy Howerdel commented:
’The Doomed’ was a rude wake-up call… apologies if you were sleeping peacefully. ‘Disillusioned’ comes from a place of overcoming the slide into the numb. It speaks to reconnection and a fresh start to a new year.
Addressing the musicality of the song, which echoes the sentiment of unity, Maynard James Keenan said:
Attempting new approaches to composing can be intimidating. Especially with an established project with such a recognizable sound. But sometimes you just gotta take the first swing. Only way to grow.
A limited-edition 10-inch single for “The Doomed/Disillusioned” arrives on March 9th. The collectible vinyl has a dual pressing of both songs on side A and a screen-printed B-side. Pre-orders are available here.
