The collaborative efforts between Cult of Luna and Julie Christmas have been nothing short of magical. Their joint album, Mariner, was one of 2016’s out-of-nowhere smash successes, and they have since been on tour to perform that album in full. The chemistry between these artists is unearthly, and if you didn’t get a chance to see it yourself, you’ll be able to now. A live album performance of Mariner, accompanied by a documentary about the collaboration along with live concert footage is due to release in April 2018!
Luckily, we don’t have to wait long for preview of the material, as Cult of Luna were kind enough to upload 16 minutes of the documentary on their YouTube channel:
In this ‘short’ teaser, the musicians manage to talk pretty extensively about how the collaboration came about and why it works so well. From the way they speak about each other, you can tell they have a great deal of respect between themselves, and it’s easy to see why Mariner turned out as well as it did.
You can expect the full documentary in April 2018 when it ships with a limited edition vinyl of Mariner performed live. No pre-order information yet, but you can follow Cult of Luna on Facebook where more information is sure to drop soon. Julie Christmas can be found on Bandcamp along with her previous works as a solo artist.
