Amenra Stream New Song “Plus Près De Toi (Closer To You)”


Amenra are now streaming “Plus Près De Toi (Closer To You)” from their new album “Mass VI“, which is headed to stores on October 20th through Neurot Recordings. The band’s vocalist Colin H. van Eeckhout commented of the track:

“The song is about a profound longing, a sadness you carry within. Solitude. The journey to come closer to the people, and things you loved and you miss. A melancholy hymn. Inspired by a translation of a 19th-century Christian hymn, “Nearer To God To Thee.” It made sense to write and sing in French. Those words felt like they had more poetic outcome, than the English substitute. By using French and Flemish on this album, I felt like I could keep it a little closer to home, to our hearts. It’s a part of our heritage.”
