Emancipator Drops “Himalayan” Ahead of Album Release


If you are looking for some soothing beats during a chaotic time, look no further than Emancipator and his new single “Himalayan.”

When I wrote about the Mountain of Memory album announcement from Emancipator a month ago, I noted the following, “I personally listen to Appling’s music when I’m looking for some natural grounding, and also when I feel the need to get up and move.” Well, that statement could not be more true today.

In a chaotic time where events and tours are being cancelled, I’m thankful to have Emancipator sending new tunes our way. And, wow, are these perfect for helping to feel grounded as much as they are good to get up and dance. Some deal with stress by cuddling in a ball and others need to move. Me? A little of both. Enter Emancipator!

When the album was announced, the first single, “Labyrinth,” was released. A couple of weeks later he quietly sent us the second single, “Iron Ox.” And today is the final teaser before the album release, the single, “Himalayan.”

The new album will drop April 3 on Loci Records and the latest single “Himalayan” is out now for your listening pleasure. Of the album, Appling says, “[It] has a loose narrative of rising from the swamps, to the summit of a mountain, and the journey of enlightenment in between. By the end of the album, you are standing atop the Mountain of Memory.”

Take a listen to “Himalayan” on your favorite platform and stay tuned for the full release of Mountain of Memory.
