Belgian Music Talents Hooverphonic Prepare New Album With Nostalgic Single ‘Mysterious’

Drawing inspiration from their influences: William Orbit, Madonna, Nas, Todd Terry, Massive Attack, Moloko and their own earlier material, Belgian icons Hooverphonic return with new music. Their first single from the as yet detail-free upcoming LP is Mysterious which pairs electronics with strings and percussion for a very nineties trip-pop-inspired Hooverphonic track.

Hooverphonic returned to prominence thanks to their participation at the Eurovision Song Contest in 2021 with The Wrong Place. Although the track hit nineteenth place in the grand final, it lead to the release of album Hidden Stories – their first with vocalist Geike Arnaert since 2008. Geikie continues with the band for Mysterious and the upcoming LP.

The band share: “Some say ‘Mysterious’ is ‘Battersea 2.0’. Sometimes a track doesn’t need more than strings, a beat, and the enchanting vocals of Geike. The lyrics are dark and poetic yet hopeful. They tell a story about being afraid and, at the same time, being intrigued about what’s coming.”

You can watch the international video for Mysterious above. A Belgian version tied to TV series Love Me has also been released.
