Hercules & Love Affair Release <em>Omnion</em> (Single) ft. Sharon Van Etten

Hercules & Love Affair release the title track to their upcoming fourth album, Omnion featuring Sharon Van Etten. The track is much slower and more lush than the previously released “Controller” featuring Farris Badwan. Omnion is sexy and slow electronica at its best.

According to Andy Butler the front man for Hercules & Love Affair, Omnion is an ode to “a childlike dialogue with a higher entity voiced through the filter of a broken adult male.”  The pair met when Butler remixed Van Etten’s “Not Myself” her heart wrenching response to the Orlando Pulse Club massacre.

Andy Butler, “I feel so blessed to have had Sharon Van Etten sing Omnion. She is an artist of incredible depth and authenticity and her voice is so inviting yet truly has a mystery about it. Those qualities rendered a beautiful interpretation of a song that is ultimately an appeal to the divine for help and healing. With such a generous spirit and kindness about her, she was a joy to work with.”

“This song is so vulnerable, but strong. Coming to terms with identity and finding community…  It’s a very important time to share in that sentiment. I really appreciate Andy reaching out to collaborate. His heart beats in his songs,” said Sharon Van Etten.

Omnion,” the single, is available to download today. The album is being released by Beat Big Records on September 1, 2017.
