We’ve heard the new Deftones album, Koi No Yokan, and to quote Mr. Johnny Firecloud, it’s fucking fantastic. Many songs are over five minutes long, with tons of cool tempo changes, and some real monsters, such as Romantic Dreams. Get ready for this one.
In the meantime, here’s what we can tell you.
As previously reported, the album is entitled Koi No Yokan, and it’s due out November 13th. Tempest will be the first single.
Koi No Yokan tracklist, finalized this morning:
The phrase Koi No Yokan is a Japanese term that’s not literally translatable to English. It basically means love at first sight, but the distinction is that Koi No Yokan specifically refers to the feeling that this love at first sight is one’s destiny, with the who and how and why being, possibly, completely unknown.
