To create Far In, the latest Helado Negro album, Roberto Carlos Lange drew inspiration from the many places he journeyed to over the past three years. There was a festival and collaboration session in Berlin, a two week trip to Marfa, Texas which became a six-month stay when the pandemic hit, his old home in Brooklyn, and his new home in Asheville, North Carolina. So it’s fitting that these four locales are among the over two dozen tour stops for Helado Negro in support of Far In that have just been announced for 2022.
In our interview with Lange in October, he spoke about the Kite Symphony audiovisual exhibition that brought him to Marfa in the first place. Today, he also announced that it will open on January 26th featuring a film, outdoor composition and installation, a series of drawings, sculpture, animation, and an Earth Day performance on April 22nd. “You’re kind of enveloped by what you see; it’s the antithesis of the city,” Lange said of Marfa, an ethos that will surely spill over into Kite Symphony.
Lastly, the live video for standout song “There Must Be A Song Like You” has also been released. It features L’Rain’s Taja Cheek on bass and you can watch it above.
