After the first single “Kamilah”, LONG DISTANCE CALLING will release the second single “Giants Leaving” on 27.05.22, from their album “Eraser”, which will be released on August 26th.
With a concise and elegant rush of sound, an irresistible four-to-the-floor beat and some of the sharpest hooks in LONG DISTANCE CALLING’s history, “Giants Leaving” is dedicated to the albatross.
“The song is dedicated to the albatross, unfortunately, one of many species facing extinction. The albatross is a beautiful and majestic creature, soaring across the skies with the largest wingspan in nature. The albatross is one of a few monogamous species, making it more challenging to mate in an increasingly dangerous and overfished environment, decreasing food availability and ongoing pollution.” – Long Distance Calling
