This is the perfect place for it!

Possibly you were thinking of the Drone Music thread?

Gaelynn Lea also did a session together with the other Al, Church. But the audio quality is lacking a bit

This is older, but here's an interview with Al's guitar

Thanks for the links!

Mimi and Alan have collaborated on the new album by Chantal Acda which will be released in late March. Bill Frisell also contributes.

Quote:
****Very proud to announce my new single DISAPPEAR*** Alan Sparhawk and Mimi Parker from the band LOW are joining me, together with other wonderful spirits. LOW has been a guidance for 20+ years now. They showed me both musically and personally a beautiful meaning of grace, intensity, vulnerability and respect. It means the world to have them by my side on this one! I wrote this song with two opposite feelings. One of disbelief and protest. But, even more present, one of hope and celebration. Hope that one day we will find grace in not wanting more, in being fragile, in not wanting to be sure or right, in letting go the search for success and happiness. One day we will just be open.

Join us tomorrow for a live YouTube premiere of a new visual album celebrating the 20th anniversary of Things We Lost In The Fire! There will be new videos for all the tracks from the album followed by a live Q&A over on the Low Instagram channel. We'll also be taking orders for a new screenprint by Zak to mark the occasion, this will be available on our web store and signed by us all.

It begins at 3pm CDT. That's 9pm in London and a whole lot of other times elsewhere. We hope you can make it!

And there's also a podcast (which I haven't listened to yet)
Quote:
Life of the Record is a podcast about the making of iconic albums. There is an episode about Things We Lost in the Fire (64 minutes; https://lifeoftherecord.com/#/low/ ).
It's a song-by-song interview

Totally forgot about that Chantal Acda album! Will check it out tomorrow

Here's what Alan told Uncut... last year, I guess, because it was published in the February 2021 issue, which must have been out late December 2020 or something:

Quote:
For the last few records we've learned to put the vocals on early and put them in a place where you can't deny them. You're like, "OK, so how is the music going to step up and be where it needs to be?" Using the vocals as the anchor for that has been a little weird and risky, but I think it's working. It's a challenge. We're still trying to find sounds that we've never heard before, trying to find ways to depict rhythm without necessarily going to drums first. I've been playing more guitar lately, though it's more in an effort to make sounds that don't sound like guitar, finding other ways to use it. On a lyrical level, there's definitely a feeling of reaching. We're trying to actually touch the sky, not just expose it. Sometimes you reach for it and it disappears, and that's the sound that you capture. We're reaching for transcendence and trying to be cautious about escaping. We just wrote one song that we might record the working title right now is "It's Not Broken, I'm Not Angry". A couple of the lines are memories of stirring underneath the car with my dad as a kid, trying to fix the transmission in the dark when it's 10 below zero. There's another called "Disappearing", which is kind of a tribute to living by the water. Where we live in Duluth, Lake Superior is big enough that there's a disappearing horizon, as if it was an ocean. It's weird. I like the idea of the unknown.

According to the magazine, the release date is "August" of this year. We'll see!
