Palo Santo – the follow-up to 2015’s Communion – will be released 8 July, and will be accompanied by a short film of a dystopian society populated by androids known as Palo Santo (Spanish for “holy wood”).
It will have 14 tracks in total, including the critically-acclaimed dark-pop track Sanctify, which charted at 25 on the UK Singles Chart last month, and the H&M campaign single, Hypnotized.
The trio also shared the trailer for their short film, which is narrated by the one and only, Dame Judi Dench. She will also star alongside Olly and Vithaya Pansringarm in the Fred Rowson directed clip.
The premise reads: “Palo Santo has also become a city on a distant planet, on which human beings are a rare commodity, worshipped and idolized by an android society. Olly, along with the final humans, is recruited to perform in a series of bizarre erotic cabarets, for an artificial master known only as The Showman.”
