Deftones’ ninth album, “Ohms”, is set to drop on September 25th, and every track I’ve heard so far is pretty damn stunning. This is the title track and it has a powerful sound a powerful video to go with it.
The band is also using the cover art to raise money for a COVID-related cause:
12,995 dots comprise the #Ohms album cover, and we’re inviting you to become a part of it. By adopting a dot on the cover, you’ll be contributing to the UC Davis Children’s Hospital and to #CrewNation to fund lifesaving research and pediatric services, as well as support the music industry’s vital crew members, whose livelihood have been impacted by COVID-19. Please join us in supporting these two great organizations and adopt a dot (or many) on our album cover at Deftones.com/adopt. “Ohms album art is an iconic rendering of a suspended, chance moment in time. Over 10,000 individual circles become unified to create the distinct visual. As with Deftones music and lyrics, the definitive meaning of the imagery invites and relies on interpretation from the viewer. From a dreamy gaze above, to sadness, hope, despair, optimism and a longing for connection, the emotions conveyed are endless and infinitely evolving.” – Frank Maddocks (Creative Director, Deftones)
