The first single from the new Gramsci album ‘Inheritance’ is out now.

"Ancient History" is song about moving past regret and living life with a daily grace.

It’s the first new music from Gramsci in 15 years. Mainstay Paul McLaney has spent the intervening years studiously. Be it the classical folk stylings of ‘EDIN’, the ambient electronica of The Impending Adorations or the theatrical song settings of Shakespearean solililoquies, its all been about musical and personal growth.

All of those musical threads are now woven into ‘Inheritance’.

The new album is the first to feature veteran producer Greg Haver (Manic Street preachers, Catatonia) and the live line up is completed with multi-instrumentalist Jol Mulholland (Gasoline Cowboy, Mulholland).

The video is compiled from an early experimental masterpiece ‘Ballet Mécanique’ (1923–24) a Dadaist post-Cubist art film conceived, written, and co-directed by the artist Fernand Léger in collaboration with the filmmaker Dudley Murphy (with cinematographic input from Man Ray).
