Moonspell have premiered a new video for their new song “Common Prayers.” This track is from the band’s new album “Hermitage,” which will be released on February 26.
The group commented:
“Directed by Guilherme Henriques and featuring the actress, singer and performer Aurora Pinho, this clip was shot 90 meters below the surface at the amazing caves of Grutas de Mira de Aire, one of Portugal’s seven natural wonders.
With a classy Gothic and catchy feel, this is Moonspell’s at their best songwriting skills. The lyrical content is “perverse, almost religious” and deals with the 18th century pregnancy surge amidst Portuguese nuns. Twenty century demolitions and excavations unearthed the bones of hundred of children, revealing the sad faith of Jesus’ son’s and daughters
You are a common prayer!”
Vocalist Fernando Ribeiro added:
“Political? Religious? Who the fuck cares, really? Music is, for Moonspell, about self-expression, and we are old enough to pick our battles. ‘Common Prayers’ is the kind of song we love to write, sensual, different, with a to-die-for chorus. ‘Hermitage’ is coming your way. You can run, but you cannot hide. Staying safe is staying smart. Say a prayer!”
