Gazpacho return with new single and Soyuz album details


Gazpacho have announced their return with a brand new single and details on their upcoming album.

The single is titled Soyuz One and it will feature on Soyuz, which which will launch on May 18 via Kscope.

The album will be the Norwegian outfit’s first since 2015’s Molok, with the themes said to be “born from the idea of how beautiful moments pass and cannot be saved for later.”

A statement says that Soyuz also takes inspiration from several eras and subject matters including “the doomed Russian space capsule Soyuz and its iconic captain Komarov, the Tibetan Buddhist funeral practice in Sky Burial, the inclusion of the oldest recording of the human voice from 1860 and the Hans Christian Andersen inspired Emperor Bespoke.”

The cover art was designed by painter Antonio Seijas and was inspired by Russian Cold War colours and fonts from the Soyuz One flight era.

Soyuz is now available for pre-order.
