Trinity Releases Desert Rain Feb. 25 Via The Fuel Music
First Album To Be Released Internationally In Over Two Years From These "Craftsmen Of Heavenly Parties"; Album Features Single "Metropolitain" Releasing Today
The world-music pop flair of Desert Rain was inspired by the band's travels internationally, jamming with immigrant-musicians wherever they were in time and space. The resulting warm-blooded, passionate rhythms and melodies are steeped with lyrics birthed in real-life stories, all offering hope for a brighter future.
"When we recorded Desert Rain, we set out to create an album that captures our experiences and faith in songs; an album that shows both the darkness of the world we live in and the light piercing through it," says Trinity's Elbert Smelt (lead vocals, flutes, saxophone). "It shares the conviction that we as human beings are meant for more. When people make peace, join hands and stand against injustice, and feel hope rising up -- when someone is healed and when you hear beautiful music: then the real world is visible."
The lead single from the album, "Metropolitain,"
"I think I have a love-hate relationship with cities," says Elbert, who crafted the song's chorus while in Paris, France. "The city is this creativity-magnet just for the buzz. But it will drive you crazy just as easily. If you can't keep up in the rat race you end up in the gutter. At the same time cities can be birthplaces of art, culture and new ideas that help humanity improve life."
The first album released internationally in over two years, Desert Rain precedes a series of new recordings and appearances from Trinity slated for this year and to be announced soon. It also follows 2019's globally acclaimed album The In Between (https://va.lnk.to/
