New Album ‘Exaudia’, out 26th August

After announcing the details behind their highly-anticipated collaborative album earlier this year, Dead Can Dance’s Lisa Gerrard and producer-composer Marcello De Francisci have now returned to share the atmospheric new offering ‘When The Light Of Morning Comes’.

Capturing the broad and ethereal majesty of their work together, ‘When The Light Of Morning Comes’ highlights the rich and soaring tone of what we can expect from their upcoming full-length. Accompanied by a euphoric and cinematic new video, which adds powerful imagery to their newest release, they are conveying the bold and orchestral inspiration that has been tethered to their new studio album since its conception.

Lisa Gerrard has established herself as one of the world’s most highly acclaimed film composers,  winning a Golden Globe for her work on the score for ‘Gladiator’ with Hans Zimmer. Her film work also includes ‘Whale Rider’, which received an Academy Award nomination, and  ‘Balibo’, which won the Screen Music Award for Best Feature Film Score.

She also performs as part of the ‘Gladiator Live’ concerts and ‘The World of Hans Zimmer’ tours, and received a Grammy nomination for ‘Hiraeth’ alongside David Kuckhermann in 2018. She went on to become a featured vocalist on the score for ‘Dune’, before returning to Dead Can Dance to release ‘Dionysus’, and touring in 2022.

Marcello De Francisci is a composer based in Los Angeles, California. His career began as a visual artist while attending fine arts at an institution founded by the famed Baroque painter Bartolome Esteban Murillo in Seville, Spain. He later furthered his education at the Universidad Complutense in Madrid.

In 2006 he won the Best Soundtrack of the Year G.A.N.G. Award for his work on Sony Computer Entertainment’s ‘God of War’ game. Soon after he partnered up with Lisa Gerrard and they co-wrote numerous motion picture soundtrack scores together, as well as collaborating on the solo album project titled ‘Departum’.

Lisa Gerrard and Marcello De Francisci’s new single ‘When The Light Of Morning Comes’ is available to stream now, with their new album ‘Exaudia’ out on the 26th of August.
