Five months after Café Tacvba released their first single in four years, the Mexican quartet dropped another song from from their forthcoming album.
Their latest, released today, is a contemplative soft-rock ballad titled “Disolviéndonos.” Written by vocalist Rubén Albarrán and produced by Gustavo Santaolalla, the song also features Joey Waronker (Beck, REM, Atoms for Peace, Johnny Cash) on drums.
Santaolalla, co-writer of “Disolviéndonos” said that the song is “oniric and introspective at times and overwhelming in others. ‘Disolviéndonos’ is a song that invites us to an inner journey. A poetic path where, through the voice, the instruments and the very diverse musical landscapes, our material, slowly, is losing its form. ”
When discussing the origins of the song and the questions that were mulling around in his head, Albarrán said: “Can you hear the tumbling fall of the old tree in the lonely forest? Is everything forever? Is a dream more illusory and absurd than what we call reality? They are only questions that, little by little, fade into nothing, in the absence of a true answer.”
See, the song is totally trippy!
The band is currently playing a few dates in Southern California and in New York. Last night, on the first night of two show dates at the House of Blues in Anaheim, Albarrán said the new album, which has yet to be named, will be released in May.
Beginning in October of last year, Café Tacvba has released three songs from the album, including “Un Par De Lugares,” “Futuro,” and this latest track. At last night’s show, the band played two new singles and a bunch of old classics.
The band’s upcoming shows include at a stop at Terminal 5, in New York on April 20 and the Hollywood Bowl on Sept. 17. Tonight they’re at the House of Blues in Anaheim once again so do yourself a favor and score tickets at any means. Your soul will thank you.
