††† (Crosses), the side-project of Deftones frontman Chino Moreno and multi-instrumentalist and producer Shaun Lopez, have shared two new songs from their upcoming album.
On October 13, the duo will release new album ‘Goodnight, God Bless, I Love U, Delete.’, which was announced this summer with first single ‘Invisible Hand’, and will feature guest appearances from The Cure’s Robert Smith and Run The Jewels’ El-P.
Ahead of the release of the album, the pair have shared two new tracks, and you can listen to ‘Light As A Feather’ and ‘Ghost Ride’ below.
The new album follows recent EP ‘PERMANENT.RADIANT‘, a one-off double A-side of ‘Initiation’/’Protection’ and a George Michael cover.
Discussing its creation, Moreno said in a statement: “When we started working on ‘Goodnight, God Bless, I Love U, Delete.’, there was so much more light coming in my life, for numerous reasons.
“There’s a lot more optimism. Even the darker themes are more romanticised and not coming from a place of despair.”
Speaking to NME last year about the future of the project, Moreno said: “To use Deftones as an analogy: when we did our first record, we were just trying to figure out what the hell we were doing, ‘Around The Fur’ was us getting some confidence and success with that, then when we made ‘White Pony’ that was us saying, ‘We can do anything now’.
“People liked what we did and we had the freedom to expand. That’s where we’re at with Crosses now. We’ve shown what we can do, so now it’s like, ‘Check this out!’”
