Amsterdam electronic duo Weval have announced their sophomore album The Weight. The 13-track LP will be released on March 8 via Kompakt. To get the promo cycle under way, they have released the lead single “Heaven, Listen.”

The single is a frenetic, quirky and intricately put together blend of electronic music with some pop sensibilities.

Their debut was our top album of 2016, so to say we are excited about this is an understatement. Having taken a listen at the full thing, fans are in for treat this time around as well.

The Weight finds the duo exploring new avenues in their sound, where they eventually came to a place where “everything felt spontaneous, new and exciting, like we had in the beginning.” They involved various instruments like guitars, piano, synths and some quirky toy synths.

"We've always wanted a narrative for the album, and finding the right order perhaps took the most effort" they explain in a press release. "We felt anxious, felt insanely positive, felt heartbroken again, felt in love again, and there was death, and even suicide around us. It was quite chaotic."
