Seattle indie-psych trio Spirit Award have released their new single “Dark Night of the Soul,” from their forthcoming album Muted Crowd, due out October 19th via Union Zero.

Listen to “Dark Night of the Soul” below:

Vocalist Daniel Lyon explains: “The idea for this came when I was going through a transformation/change in my own life”. The ‘dark night of the soul’ is a term that goes back a long time. It is a term used to describe what one could call a collapse of a perceived meaning in life…an eruption into your life of a deep sense of meaninglessness.” 

Produced by Trevor Spencer (Father John Misty, Fleet Foxes), the band’s sophomore album Muted Crowd draws its inspiration from Seattle. The album highlights the band’s signature style of expansive and enveloping soundscapes, the quality in which is almost therapeutic. Spirit Award’s new album Muted Crowd can be pre-ordered on vinyl here.
