A Perfect Circle has released a brand new song called “Disillusioned”, the second track to be heard from the band’s upcoming album.
Back in October, A Perfect Circle released another song called “The Doomed”. The official music video for the track was directed by Jeremy Danger and Travis Shinn.
“Disillusioned” stands in stark contrast to “The Doomed”, which felt “apocalyptic” (Rolling Stone) and the track’s video was “eerie” and “intense” (Revolver). “Disillusioned” strikes a more optimistic tone, urging listeners to connect with each other once again.
“‘The Doomed’ was a rude wake-up call… apologies if you were sleeping peacefully,” said guitarist Billy Howerdel of the tone of the bombastic song. “‘Disillusioned’ comes from a place of overcoming the slide into the numb. It speaks to reconnection and a fresh start to a new year.”
Addressing the musicality of the song, which echoes the sentiment of unity, singer Maynard James Keenan said: “Attempting new approaches to composing can be intimidating. Especially with an established project with such a recognizable sound. But sometimes you just gotta take the first swing. Only way to grow.”
