[pullquote quote="That creation lives not by the laws of duality or division, but emanates from everything at once."]Fresh from the debut of their joint documentary venture, Big Easy Express, with Mumford and Sons and Old Crow Medicine Show, Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeroes recently released an organic, acoustic-guitar hippie-tinged tune called “Man On Fire.”

Interchanging lovely melodics with tribal shouts (and what sounds like a didgeridoo), “Man On Fire” is the first single from Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeroes’ upcoming album Here–which features album art shot by frontman Alex Ebert in Mozambique.

According to a press release, the band is also planning to release another album later in 2012.


[pullquote quote="Instead of putting it out all at once, we found that two different albums seemed to be forming. Alone these albums are albums. Together these albums express a varying and so relatively living portrait of our lives. "]“In the middle of the recording process we realized we were essentially making a double album. Being four years since our last album, the writing explored a wide variety of subject and sound, as it turned out we had a lot to say,” said the frontman “Instead of putting it out all at once, we found that two different albums seemed to be forming. Alone these albums are albums. Together these albums express a varying and so relatively living portrait of our lives.”

Ebert also talked a little about Edward Sharpre and the Magnetic Zeroes’ colorful, evocative new album art.

“The hard division created by the horizon of sea and sky represents the appearance of a dualistic world of dark and light, us and them, here and there. The circle that breaks the dividing line between the sea and the sky represents what feels to be the underlying truth: that creation lives not by the laws of duality or division, but emanates from everything at once, swirling all falsely-held boundaries in a wonder of every spectrum of experience,” said Ebert.
