Efterklang announce new album, share “Plant” ft Mabe Fratti

Danish group Efterklang have announced a new album, Things We Have In Common, which will be out September 27 via City Slang. The album features appearances from Beirut, Mabe Fratti and Sønderjysk Pigekor.

Things We Have in Common also features the return of Rune Mølgaard, who left the band in 2007 and co-wrote seven of the nine songs on the album. It also was made after Rune left the Mormon church. “It became a completely therapeutic process for me,” says Rune. “When we write music together, it happens from a genuinely curious place, in a shared experience of the moment.”

The album include previously released Beirut collab “Getting Reminders,” and they’ve just released a new single, “Plant,” which features Mabe Fratti. Vocalist Casper Clausen says the song is “dedicated to the act of reaching out, beyond ourselves, daring to go beyond our inner world and share ourselves with others, putting our vulnerability on display, like a plant reaching for the light.” Mabe Fratti adds that making it “was extremely joyful as I remember witnessing the song developing when I went with Efterklang to Sommertræf two years ago. It’s a breeze, this song. I felt that Casper’s tone and mine are super friendly with each other!”
