Stoner Metal Icons Sleep Share First New Song in a Decade; Stream "The Clarity"

It's the first new music since 2003's 63-minute weed odyssey 'Dopesmoker.'

According to a recent interview with NPR, Sleep wrote "The Clarity"—their first new song since 2003's red-eyed classic Dopesmoker— as a "lyrical follow-up to a lifetime of marijuana enjoyment." The song is ten minutes of heady, solo-stuffed sludge that proves the stoner-doom metal icons' cloudy textural palette and assured technical skills haven't burned out one bit; this music still feels like slinking into a oversized couch after taking a really massive bong rip, your mind blinking with gooey, half-formed thoughts. The track is being released as part of Adult Swim's weekly singles series, which has already put out new songs by Tim Hecker and Destruction Unit; a new single from Deafheaven is on the way, too.
