Sleep Party People’s has released a new track called “The Sun Will Open Its Core,” the third single from their forthcoming album Lingering. The album was written, recorded and produced by Danish multi-instrumentalist Brian Batz and features collaborations with The Antlers’ Peter Silberman and Air vocalist Beth Hirsch. When talking about the track Batz says, “I got really frustrated and emotionally upset when the whole refugee debate in Denmark was at its highest. I felt extremely indignant in terms of how society dealt with this problem. Normally I don’t go into politics, especially not in my music, but this was kind of inevitable.”

“I don’t get how people can reject human beings, who are fleeing from their destroyed homes and cities. What if it happened to us? Wouldn’t we do the same and ask for help and do whatever we felt necessary? We should be able to help each other even if we don’t agree on religion, politics or what we eat and wear. It puzzles me that some people out there can’t see the reason in helping. I had to write a song about this. Period.”
