Accompanying the announcement of a forthcoming seventh Explosions in the Sky studio album, End, the legendary post-rock quartet has shared the sprawling lead single, “Ten Billion People,” and a mesmerizing official music video that matches the track’s ascending soundscape. “Every song comes from a story, or an idea one of us has had that we’ve all expanded on and made its own world,” the band shared in a statement. As for the cryptic album title, it does not signify a final release. “Maybe it’s our nature, but we kept feeling that the album title was ultimately open to a lot more interpretation—the end of a thing or a time can mean a stop, but it can also mean a beginning, and what happens after one thing ends might pale in comparison to what it becomes next.”
