I Break Horses have announced their first album for six years, ‘Warnings’. Set for release in May through Bella Union, its first single, ‘Death Engine’, is out now.

“It has been some time in the making”, says the project’s creative force Maria Lindén. “About five years, involving several studios, collaborations that didn’t work out, a crashed hard drive with about two years of work, writing new material again instead of trying to repair it. New studio recordings, erasing everything, then recording most of the album myself at home”.

“Nowadays, the attention span equals nothing when it comes to how most people consume music”, she adds. “And it feels like songs are getting shorter, more ‘efficient’. I felt an urge to go against that and create an album journey from start to finish that takes time and patience to listen to. Like, slow the fuck down!”

As for new single, ‘Death Engine’, she says: “The song, which was written in connection to a close friend’s suicide attempt, also reflects upon the increasing reports that suicide is the second leading cause of death among Generation Z, with this age group having more mental health issues than any other generation”.

‘Warnings’ is out on 8 May. Watch the video for ‘Death Engine’ here:
