Watch: Empire Of The Sun Reveal ‘Ice On The Dune’ Album Teaser, New Music

Written by Marc Zanotti on March 12, 2013

Empire Of The Sun have release a trailer for their long-awaited, highly anticipated second album Ice On The Dune, which is now confirmed to be due out this year in June. The trailer contains a snippet of new music and even though it’s only about 10 seconds worth, the pumping beat is an exciting teaser.

The majority of the trailer plays like a mini-movie, with some archaeology-type folks quaking in their boots upon discovering ancient cave drawings that symbolise the return of Empire Of The Sun. Then we see Luke Steele and Nick Littlemore dressed up to the nines with the new beat thumping away.

When speaking with Pnau and Empire Of The Sun member Peter Mayes last December, Mayes told Music Feeds that working in the studio with Steele has been an unforgettable experience:

“Having a guy like Luke (Steele) to work with is…incredible… And one thing that Nick (Littlemore) and I try to do as much as we can in life is to work with incredibly talented singers and artists. And when you’ve got a voice that is special and communicates to people in a certain way, then you’ve got a true gift. And Luke has that. And he’s an amazing guy to work with, I mean he’s so creative.”

Have a watch of the teaser below, then read the narrative posted on the band’s website.

“Archaeologists have uncovered interglacial cave paintings deep within a rock shelter in Mexico’s Guerrero Peninsula. The paintings date between 4,200 and 8,000 years ago, making them the most important finding of the millennia. The site was previously believed to be the birthplace of La Llorona, or “The Weeping Woman.”

“This must have been a place of memory,” said Ramon Fortunato, an archaeologist at the University of Monterrey, of the site. “The people of this region may have kept it secret, in order to harness its power.”

Inhabitants from the area are thought to be directly related to the “Empire of the Sun,” responsible for protecting the Earth from catastrophe for generations.

Update: Further research has concluded that the cave is the meeting point of the leylines of synchronicity. The find has been praised by heads of state and notable scientists, and a meeting of world leaders has been called in Geneva, Switzerland.
