Here's the first video for a track of our new album THE CURRENT:
"The Seventh Day" was directed by the Spanish artist Helio León and shot in Cork, Ireland in the last days of December 2019.
We are happy to announce the fourth album hackedepicciotto have recorded since becoming nomads in 2010: THE CURRENT.
The long player will be released on
January, the 31st of 2020.
It is their most powerful album yet. After composing desert drones for their previous album “Perseverantia “ and dark foreboding melodies for “Menetekel”, their new album moves forwards, gaining in speed and energy. Alexander Hackes background with Einstürzende Neubauten can be felt in the many rhythmic tracks. “We had the urge to include more percussive elements and electronic sounds to create a powerful rhythmic feel. A wilder and more danceable element. Something to get all of us on our feet, and moving. Away from depression and hopelessness.” The classic background of Danielle de Picciotto has become more prominent as well. Glorious choirs and violin harmonies flow throughout the album giving it an almost symphonic sound.The artist couple calls their music “cinematic-drone” and their album sounds like the film track to an apocalyptic feature-length film, hopefully with a happy end.

New album out now.
“Menetekel” is obtainable here.
"(Menetekel is-) their best album yet – a wonderful synthesis of two people in love and full of the possibility of music and a resonating, vibrating drone mantra of an album that is full of brooding beauty and a sense of wonder and melancholy and a wonderful work and piece of art."
"(Menetekel is-) an album that combines dread and wonder with the inevitability of warning."
Menetekel ist ein paganistisch-spirituelles Soundscape-Hörspiel, dramaturgisch durchkomponiert und doch frei und assoziativ.
Menetekel schert sich mit seiner entschleunigten Wuchtdramaturgie zum Glück nicht um die minimierten Aufmerksamkeitsspannen im Whatsapp- und Twitter-Zeitalter.
Ganz schön intensiv war das letzte Album von Alexander Hacke und Danielle de Picciotto. Dass es noch intensiver geht, zeigt das Traumpaar der Experimental-Avantgarde auf „Menetekel“. Es ist ein düsteres Meisterwerk, das Unbehagen erzeugen will. Eine Vorahnung vom Untergang der Welt, eine Reflexion aktueller Zustände.
Auf "Menetekel" klingen Folk und Traditionals aus unterschiedlichen Weltregionen an, aber auch sakrale Musik. Und vor allem: Drone.
