Released 4th December
Calexico are back and have just announced a new album 'Seasonal Shift'. The record is a celebration of the festive season and the band are sharing the first track from the record "Hear the Bells" online today.
Speaking about "Hear the Bells", Joey Burns of Calexico said "When writing songs for a seasonal album, I wanted to include some of the aspects of celebrations and traditions observed in Tucson around early November. This song is about holding time and space for memories. Dia de Los Muertos and The All Souls Procession are two events that have influenced Southern Arizona and remembering those who've passed away. But it could also be about giving memories importance, too. The story could be about two lovers or two family members.
