Today, a third new song from that record is released, titled ‘Built On Ashes‘. The lyrics hark back to Billie Holiday’s ‘Strange Fruit‘, declaring, “like a strange fruit out of season / you are bound to die alone / and you will swing free in the breeze then.”
Zeal & Ardor mastermind Manuel Gagneux comments, “Here’s our last single before ‘Stranger Fruit’ comes out in its entirety. ‘Built On Ashes’ is the album’s closing track and stands out as a more sombre track, acting as a farewell of sorts. We hope you like it… there’s a storm out there.”
