Alcest Share Ben Chisholm Remix Of “Protection”

Alcest‘s Neige commented:

“It was a real pleasure for us to have ‘Protection‘ remixed by the multi-instrumentist and producer Ben Chisholm (known for being the close collaborator of Chelsea Wolfe). His take on the song left us speechless as he gave it his very own style; a totally new sound, atmosphere and structure. We absolutely loved his approach.”

Chisholm added:

“It was an honor to be invited to reimagine ‘Protection‘. The melodies and changes are so strong, it was a pleasure to work with. I have the utmost respect for Alcest, so it’s really special to be connected to their legacy, and especially to this fantastic album.”

The original version of “Protection” appears on the band’s latest album “Spiritual Instinct.“

Alcest Premiere “Protection” Music Video

Alcest have premiered a new video for their new song “Protection.” This track is from the band’s new album “Spiritual Instinct,” which will be released on October 25. Frontman Neige commented:

“‘Protection‘ is the first track I wrote for ‘Spiritual Instinct‘. It’s probably one of our most heavy, spontaneous songs. It is about inner conflict, the tension between the spiritual and darker sides of a person, facing your own anguishes in order to embrace them and then fight them. Like the other tracks on the album, writing it was a very cathartic, healing process for me.”
