“A Greater Call”: Listen to the First Released Track from the Cult of Luna/Julie Christmas Album!


Cult of Luna and Julie Christmas - Mariner

When Cult of Luna and Julie Christmas (ex-Made Out of Babies, ex-Battle of Mice) first announced their new collaboration, Mariner, they promised that the first single would drop February 11. Well, it’s February 11… and the single is here! The eight-and-a-half minute track, entitled “A Greater Call,” is goddamn great. It basically sounds exactly the way you’d expect it to sound: like Cult of Luna with some vocals by Julie Christmas. No complaints here! “A Greater Call” is expansive and cinematic and totally crushing. I’m not even that bummed that Christmas is really a minor presence on the track, ’cause the band says the song “might not be representative” of “Julie’s involvement.” Christ on a cracker, I cannot wait to hear the rest of this record.

Stream “A Greater Call” below. Mariner comes out April 8. Go here to find geographically-appropriate pre-order links.
