12" Terra Sola #81254
Release Date: February 14, 2020
On the heels of an incredible 2-year, 36-country, 200-show touring cycle supporting UTOPIOID, Rosetta returns with new single TERRA SOLA. Conceived on tour and breathing more freely outside the structure of a formal album, the title track layers a multitude of moods, its cinematic sweep hearkening back to Rosetta deep cuts like "TMA-3" and "So Warm a Solitude." At the same time, it explores new textures and new conceptual ground, connecting the human themes of UTOPIOID with questions about the future of the planet and our people on it.
TERRA SOLA also features two brand-new B-side tracks, connected in concept but showcasing the quieter sonic incarnation of Rosetta. "57844" mines the harmonic structures of UTOPIOID's "54543" for new sounds and new meanings, while the instrumental "Where Is Hope" merges gentle acoustic guitar and lo-fi electronica, rare sounds in the Rosetta catalog.
