Danish orchestral pop group Choir of Young Believers will release their second album, Rhine Gold, March 20th on Ghostly International. Founding songwriter and vocalist Jannis Noya Makrigiannis explains that the lush "Patricia's Thirst" is structurally different than the group's other tracks.

"'Patricia's Thirst' is the fastest and shortest song we have ever recorded in the band. Not that it is particularly fast or short, but for us it is," Makrigiannis says. "Nis Bysted and Aske Zidore, our two friends who produced and recorded the song with us, forced us to play the song three times as fast in the studio as we intended. I was almost crying in despair and felt very misunderstood, but after screaming at each other for half a day, I actually ended up preferring their tempo over ours."

“Bird on a Wire”

Leonard Cohen | 1969

While living on the Greek island of Hydra, Cohen was battling a lingering depression when his girlfriend handed him a guitar and suggested he play something. After spotting a bird on a telephone wire, Cohen wrote this prayer-like song of guilt. First recorded by Judy Collins, it would be performed numerous times by artists incuding Johnny Cash, Joe Cocker and Rita Coolidge. "I'm always knocked out when I hear my songs covered or used in some situation," Cohen told Rolling Stone. "I've never gotten over the fact that people out there like my music."
