Commissioned by Danish theater group Hotel Pro Forma, the album is a sprawling, experimental work defined more by ambient synth hum and field-recording rustle than by melodic hooks or danceable grooves. The Knife wrote and recorded the 90-minute piece in collaboration with underground electronic acts Mt. Hooks and grooves do crop up occasionally, as heard on "Seeds," a supremely lonely-sounding avant-house jam, and the 11-minute "Colouring of Pigeons," where the musicians marry moaning strings to ominous tribal drums.

Sims and Planningtorock also do some heavy lifting here, with distinctive contributions that ground the Knife’s off-kilter approach to rhythm in instruments that are perhaps more familiar to the opera audience. With a sonic palette that is endlessly complex and varied, and a take on opera that balances respect and irreverence for expectations, Tomorrow stands as a singular accomplishment of composition and performance. The question that hangs over the project, then, is whether or not it works on a level other than that of a clinical academic remove. Beam says collaboration drove everything here, starting with the track sequence: There were thematic elements going on in the songs chosen for the album. And so, in putting the sequence together I really wanted to feel like we kept sort of passing the baton around.

Marad
any chance somebody is selling vinyl? I am trying find one! <3
Rolorel
any chance of this ever coming out on vinyl? I'd love to see a nice 2xLP set of this along the lines of the set they put together for Shaking The Habitual!
Monam
I totally agree on this! It`s about time for a vinyl release

What can I say about this highly experimental opera/electronic soundscapes recording? It was very moody, and it sounded more like a nature walk or a documentary on a rare bird that plays synthesizers underground. In an age where techno "artists" boast how dirty their 'electro' is, you cannot find more earthy tones and rustles than on this release. The intro alone makes me feel like they've literally set my brain on fire as they play me music, and these are the sounds that I'm translating. This recording is the kind of music you would find me listening to in later life in my rocking chair in the insane asylum. At times, the music is downright sentimental, in particular the alt. vocal edition of "Annie's Box," which sounds like it could be used in the 2020 remake of Schindler's List. Most of the pieces sound like you pressed play on an Italian opera track and accidently dropped your iPod dock into a blender. I enjoyed the quality of the thunderous lows that are being used by the electronics here, but ultimately, I wouldn't just throw this music on for an entertaining night with friends.
