Satyricon recently announced they were working on a new album for the Satyricon & Satyricon exhibition held this April 29 at the Munch Museum in Bjørvika, Oslo, Norway, which celebrates the life and works of Norwegian artist Edvard Munch. Satyricon said at the album will make its initial debut at the exhibition that runs through August, and will be released as a standalone work at a later date. Turns out that "later date" is this week.
Satyricon has unveiled the cover for their new Satyricon & Munch album via Instagram, featuring a photo taken by Pål Laukli. The band notes that Satyricon & Munch will hit streaming services on June 10, with physical releases to follow sometime in the future.
"It is release week and this is the front cover of the new Satyricon album. As communicated previously, this is the music from the exhibition Satyricon & Munch, currently on at the Munch museum in Oslo, Norway. This album is a consequence of the making of an art exhibition, but it became clear to us during the process, that the music in itself stands on its feet and therefore we also decided to make it into an album. So purpose made, yet with the unconditional ability to live its own life, and hence you will be able to enjoy it on all streaming platforms worldwide from June 10th.
"Manufacturing time on physical products is extreme these days, so we are unable to give you a definite date on that, but the record company is preparing a wide variety of formats available to preorder simultaneously with the digital release on Friday.
"Lots of information will follow on the album in the next few days, so stay tuned."
