Today, critically acclaimed pianist/singer/composer Kelly Moran has shared her brand new single, “Sodalis (II),” which is out now.

The single is lifted from her upcoming album, Moves in the Field, which will be released on March 29th via Warp Records. Originally, Moran contributed “Sodalis” to the Field Works Ultrasonic collection released by Temporary Residence. On “Sodalis (II),” the song is reimagined with the Yamaha Disklavier..

Initially written as a track for prepared piano, ‘Sodalis’ has evolved into a lush, tender duet for myself and the player-piano,” Moran says on the new single. “To create this version, I recorded a solo arrangement of the piece on the player-piano, and then orchestrated harmonies and patterns that interlock with my parts and dance around the entire range of the piano. Composing this piece was an exploration in making the piano sound as rich, resonant, and emotive as possible. It was the first arrangement I made of my music for player-piano, and the creative possibilities of the process made me realize this was the right direction for my album.”

The release of “Sodalis (II)” is accompanied by a stirring, tenderly spellbinding live performance video directed by Yuan Liu with creative director Katharine Antoun, wherein lines are unsettlingly blurred between player and instrument as the song crescendos and climaxes.

Watch the video for “Sodalis (live)” below.

“Sodalis (II)” follows February’s “Butterfly Phase,” the acclaimed lead single which gained notice from critics and fans alike. Its breathtaking video that beautifully illustrates Kelly Moran’s love of figure skating along with the album’s title which refers to a series of skating rudiments. The video for “Butterfly Phase” was directed by Charlie Rees with creative direction from Katharine Antoun, and features U.S. Figure Skating double gold medalist Elizabeth Yoshiko Schmidt performing exquisite choreography by award-winning Olympic choreographer Benoit Richaud and on-ice cinematography by Jordan Cowan.
