Poliça have announced a new album with Berlin-based orchestral collective s t a r g a z e called Music for the Long Emergency. It is set to be out February 16th via Totally Gross National Product/Transgressive. The album was made over the course of 18 months after the groups met in Berlin last year. The first single is the 10-minute “How Is This Happening,” which Poliça vocalist Channy Leaneagh wrote day after the 2016 U.S. presidential election. “That was an example of the truly healing effects of making music with your friends,” she said in a statement. “And while it doesn’t necessarily make things better, it builds community.” Listen to the track via NPR and check out the Music for the Long Emergency tracklist below.
