Tribulation guitarist  Jonathan Hulten has shared a brand new, stand-along single, The Well, which you can listen to below.

The Swedish left-field progger, who has drawn comparisons with Sufjan Stevens, Nick Drake and John Martyn right through to his contemporaries in Anna von Hausswolff and Chelsea Wolfe, released his debut album Chants From Another Place in 2020 and followed it with the re-worked tracks of The Forest Sessions in 2022.

"The Well is referring to a place in our minds of complete calm and peace,' Hulten explains. "In this song it has the form of a body of water - be it a lake, a spring or a well. Its undisturbed surface symbolises presence and detachment at the same time, a balance of stillness on which we can call upon and reminisce in our times of distress. In the end, the water is a mirror that reflects back upon us the tranquillity it contains. Because” the water is you."

Hulten has also announced that he will be special guest to Myrkur on her upcoming UK/EU tour in April 2024.

"I’m happy to announce that I’ll be opening for the magical Myrkus on her European tour in April 2024," he adds.
