Helado Negro has announced a world tour in support of his acclaimed new album Far In. Roberto Carlos Lange will perform 25+ dates throughout Mexico, USA, UK and Europe next year. The tour announcement is accompanied by the release of an official live video for the recent single ‘There Must Be A Song Like You’.
Far In is Helado Negro’s first album on 4AD and the seventh full-length album in his catalogue. When Roberto began writing Far In immediately following his breakthrough 2019 release This is How You Smile, he could not have predicted that we would soon need to learn how to stay at home and be the stars of our domestic dance floors with intimates and online communities.
“Escape is never out there, you have to go inward,” Roberto reflects on developing an epic Helado Negro double album during these extraordinary times, embracing the dark of the unknown with openness, pleasure, and growth. Throughout Roberto’s career, imagined beings, ghosts and haunted machines appear in sci-fi stories and his own conjuring. On Far In, Roberto says he “celebrates the ghosts,” embracing pleasure and freedom to follow the metaphysical further.
A significant portion of Far In was written in Marfa, Texas where Roberto and his partner, the visual artist Kristi Sword, had originally planned to visit for a collaborative residency in early 2020. The pandemic extended their stay to six months. Roberto and Kristi are set to return to Marfa for Kite Symphony, a multidisciplinary exhibition which opens on 22 January. The project features a newly commissioned film, outdoor composition and installation, a series of drawings, sculpture, animation, and a special Earth Day performance on 22 April. Sound is the through-line between these diverse elements of this long-term project.
Tickets go on sale Friday 10th December 10am local here.
