5 Billion in Diamonds announce new album

The album also sees an exciting set of renowned collaborators

5 Billion in Diamonds, the legendary producer trio of Butch Vig, Andy Jenks and DJ James Grillo, return with a new single and album announcement, sharing the cinematic and psych-laden track “Weight of the World”.  Fusing influences from the 80s with their signature genre-bending sound, the band return with an exciting set of renowned collaborators on the upcoming record, Divine Accidents, due out November 20th via MAKE Records.

Listen to ‘Weight of the World’ HERE

Divine Accidents, the follow up to their eponymous 2017 debut – another imaginary soundtrack to another imaginary film – is a dazzling sonic and thematic journey to the heavens, a reaction to and escape from the insanity of these times. The transatlantic band have brought some 80s vibes into the cinematic mix of psych rock and folk sounds and expanded their sonic palette using the same stellar cast of collaborators including singers Ebbot Lundberg (The Soundtrack of Our Lives, Union Carbide Productions), David Schelzel (The Ocean Blue), Bristolian chanteuse Helen White and musicians including the ‘Bristol Wrecking Crew’ of Alex Lee, Sean Cook and Damon Reece on guitars, bass and drums. They also have new and sublime contributions from James Bagshaw of British psych rockers Temples and gorgeous vocals from Martin Barnard from Jenks’ 90s combo Alpha.
