Cloud Cult has released the first track from their upcoming album Metamorphosis, titled “One Way Out of a Hole.” The song is accompanied by a music video directed by Jeff D. Johnson.
Craig Minowa said, “Although we began writing this song before the pandemic, we performed it along with some other new songs as part of a live-streaming concert during the deep of the COVID shutdown, and the response from the audience on this song, in particular, was unusually empathic. So many people have been through difficult times in the last couple of years, and this song is for all of us who maybe feel a little lost and need a little comfort in remembering that we’re not alone. We’re all in this together.”
Metamorphosis, which follows 2018’s The Seeker album and feature film, was written following the death of Minowa’s father and touches on the themes of addiction, suicide, and parenting during a global pandemic. Minowa recorded the songs in an old Amish cabin he converted to a recording studio, and additional tracking for Metamorphosis was completed at Hive studio with engineer and longtime friend Brian Joseph.
Cloud Cult will embark on a U.S. tour from May through August to support the album. The band will also perform with the Minnesota Orchestra and conductor Sarah Hicks on 31st March, 1st and 2nd April.
