Shining Reveals Details For New Album "One One One"

The avant-garde Norwegian group Shining (not to be confused with the Swedish group of the same name) will release new "One One One" this spring, the band's first studio album in three years.

The album, which is available now for pre-order, will be released in North America digitally on April 23rd, with physical releases on CD and gatefold LP to follow soon after. A teaser for the forthcoming music video for first single "I Won't Forget" can be seen below.

Mixed and co-produced by Sean Beaven (NIN, Marilyn Manson, Slayer) and mastered by Tom Baker at Precision Mastering (Avenged Sevenfold, Deftones, Ministry), "One One One" sees Shining expanding on the musical palettes introduced on 2010's landmark "Blackjazz." That album -- hailed by the New York Times as "a radioactive alloy of jazz and black metal" -- scored a Norwegian Grammy nomination, cracked the Norwegian Top 10, and saw the group tour around the globe.

"While 'One One One' is meant to complete the 'Blackjazz Trilogy,' it's also definitely the catchiest and most immediate music we've ever recorded, thereby paving the way for another bright and brand new version of ourselves," says Shining front man Jørgen Munkeby. "The idea this time around was to make a series of jazz-metal hits with no fillers, hence the name of the album, and I believe we've managed to do just that. I have never been as proud of an album as I am with this one."
