Wolfgang Voigt Announces New GAS Album 'Rausch'
Published Mar 19, 2018Wolfgang Voigt is keeping his GAS revival going impressively strong recently, so much so that he's just announced another new album from his high-minded electronic project. Titled Rausch, the new GAS full-length will arrive on May 18 via Kompakt.
The record follows last year's Narkopop — which was the first GAS album in 17 years — as well as a monstrous career-spanning box set.
Rausch will arrive on CD, digitally and as a 2-LP set. You can see the record's tracklist below, but as a press release explains, "The album is meant to be heard from beginning to end as a whole." That's the new album's art up above.
While not much else has been revealed about Rausch, its press release did supply the following text:
Rausch with no name / My beautiful shine / You are the sun / This is where I want to be / Rausch with no morning / This is where we burn / The Stars sparkle / In a sea of flames / Horns and fanfares / Fanfares of joy / Fanfares of fear / The wine we drink through the eyes / The moon pours down at night in waves / Careful with that axe Eugene / Personal Jesus / No beginning no end / Eighteenth of Oktember / The night falls / The king comes / The hunt starts / Freude schöner Götterfunken / The long march through the underwood / Trust me there's nothing / Once upon a time there was a bandit / Who loved a prince / That was long ago / Spring Summer Fall and Gas / There is a train heading to Nowhere / Drums and Trumpets / Future without mankind / Warm snow / Alles ist gut / The bells toll / You are not alone / The murmur in the forest / The murmur in the head / Light as mist / Heavy as lead / Music happens / To flow like gas / A clearing / Heavy baggage / Debut in the afterlife / Death has seven cats / World heritage Rausch / Finally infinite
