Ihsahn is now streaming a surprise new single "Contorted Monuments" from the upcoming Fascination Street Sessions EP. The EP comes from sessions at Fascination Street Studios with producer Jens Bogren (Opeth, Katatonia, etc.) in collaboration with URM Academy.

"I've been working with Jens and his team for mixing and mastering for over a decade, but this course spans from pre-production to final master, so I wrote some demos and had Jens be involved from the very start," said Ihsahn.

The Fascination Street Sessions features drummer Tobias Ørnes Andersen and keyboardist Øystein Aadland, plus a guest spot from Jonas Renske of Katatonia on the cover of Kent's "Dom Andra."

"The idea was to capture high-end recordings of real instruments in great rooms, and we had an amazing setup for drums, guitars, bass, and even a vintage Hammond organ with Leslie, Wurlitzer, Rhodes, etc., recorded through Fender combos and analogue pedals etc," said Ihsahn on the concept of the EP.

"This was an amazing experience, and very educational, as I love everything related to music production. Both the Fascination Street and URM teams were incredible, and I believe everyone involved had a great time, in spite of 14–16 hour workdays. I'm very happy with how everything came together and for those interested in the technical aspects of how it was made, there will be a thorough course coming soon at URM Academy."

Fascination Sessions EP is out March 24. Pre-saves are available here.
