CELLAR DARLING released DANCE on 8 January 2021. Originally meant to be part of the band’s 2019 concept album The Spell, the song was completely rewritten during the summer and autumn of 2020. Inspiration came from two sources: the dancing plague of 1518, which is a fascinating story in itself, and an engagement with our contemporary world: doesn't it sometimes feel like we're in the process of dancing ourselves to death?

To interpret DANCE visually, Cellar Darling asked a collective of brilliant artists to transform it into their own world of images, which they did with the support of an amazing team of professionals and helpers:

“DANCE” LYRICS:

Woe drowns out the silence
Now free as heathens,
around in circles do
the torn ones dance

Gara amun ian a friar

Led by rhythmic motion,
the lucid withers
Rupturing,
the walls of every man
High above the mother,
circling avians
Gracefully inciting
one last trance

Gara amun ian a friar

Choreomania,
slaying the ever
Sheer oblivion,
conquering delirium
Oh the broken,
dancing forever,
won't atone it

Slay
Slaying the ever
Lay
with whomever
Love
like no other
Dance
now or never

Day after night, night after day
they faint away
Unwillingly their limbs are
raised towards the sky

Choreomania,
slaying the ever
Sheer oblivion,
conquering delirium
Oh the broken,
dancing forever,
won't atone it
