Cellar Darling unveil animated video for fan-voted single “Drown”

Cellar Darling Drown single cover
On March 22nd, 2019, Switzerland’s Cellar Darling will release their new concept masterpiece “The Spell”, which tells the story of a girl who falls in love with death and to get their loyal fans involved, the band had decided to let their online followers cast votes on which song from the tracklist they would like to see released as next single.

The winner was the 7-minute long “Drown” and today, you’ll get to see the hauntingly beautiful music video that was once again animated by Costin Chioreanu.

“For this single, we wanted to do something different”, the band states. “And we felt that our striking one-word tracklist is perfect for a fan vote. To let people decide which song they want to hear next based on only the title and length of the song, and to take us out of the decision process for once. To our surprise - and joy - the song that is probably the least "commercial" of all of them was chosen and we think that is kind of cool… we are proud of every chapter of this concept album, so let’s go ahead and release a non-single single, for once. We hope you enjoy it!”...

Watch the new animated video for “Drown” below.

The band also asked Costin to create the dark and mesmerising artwork representing each of the 13 songs on “The Spell”. Now each chapter has been brought to life with an exclusive, signed and dedicated art print that the band are offering in their own online store.

Pre-orders for Cellar Darling’s sophomore concept album “The Spell” are available now and you can get the album as 2 CD-digibook (featuring 13 songs + an audiobook of Anna Murphy telling the story behind the concept), black vinyl or digitally, here.
