Sleep – The Clarity

Following a 20 year hiatus from releasing any recorded material, Adult Swim is back today to offer a new single from stoner-metal titans Sleep.

The 10 minute opus ‘The Clarity’ picks up right where the group’s classic 2003 LP Dopesmoker left off, sounding as heavy as ever and emerging from a plume of smoke.

Sleep, who didn’t plan to release any new material until Adult Swim approached them, told NPR that their new release is “an exercise in musical stream of thought, as all proper music should be” and that ‘The Clarity’ is “a lyrical follow-up to a lifetime of marijuana enjoyment”.

For those unaware, Adult Swim (AdultSwim.com), launched in 2001, is Turner Broadcasting System, Inc.’s network offering original and acquired animated and live-action series for young adults.
