Devin Townsend Shares New Track Call Of The Void

Wednesday, 28 September 2022 Written by Jon Stickler

Devin Townsend has shared a new track, Call Of The Void.

Following Moonpeople, the chilled track song conjures a dreamy atmosphere and marks the second single off the Canadian singer, songwriter and producer's new album, 'Lightwork', which is due out on October 28 via InsideOut Music.

"The concept of the song is based around the 'call of the void' as an analogy for intrusive thoughts," Townsend commented. "I first heard the term describing 'the temptation to hurl yourself over the cliff when you're driving a car'… or to 'put your hand in the fire when you know you’ll get burned' etc… thoughts that you know are wrong, but you fear that you won’t be able to control the impulses to deny it. The point being: often I feel we have a choice, and trying not to lose sight of that was very important to me during recent difficult times."

Explaining its accompanying trained-themed video, he added: "In terms of the visuals: all through lockdown, I really fell in love with 'cabview train journeys’ that Railway Cowgirl and others were posting on YouTube. Essentially, they are often full, first person journeys to cold and distant places, far from the chaos of the world, with a sense of constant momentum really calmed me. Maybe being on tour for so many years is what made it a comfort to watch during lockdown, but in any event, I started writing with the videos playing in the background in the studio and so I thought it would be appropriate for this video.

"In regards to the 'story' of these three videos, the character is now on the train headed to where the Lighthouse is located. So there you go… song two. It's about not letting the chaos of the world shake you. Trying to stay calm at our centre to try and get through it all."

Townsend will embark on a European headline tour in early 2023. Tickets are on sale.
