Sounds like DCD are remaking their old stuff with even better sound recording quality. That's not a bad thing, but mind the roots.
The style of this particular song reminds me of their 1996 album Spiritchaser, which I consider to be their last original content.

I really like Brendan Perry's songs (as my last post might have revealed); but that doesn't mean that I don't like Lisa Gerard's unique singing!

A short history.
Liga Gerard singing: LG
Brendan Perry singing: BP
Brendan Perry singing Lisa Gerard style, or both together: BP/LG

I'm deliberately skipping their first album.

Spleen and Ideal, 1985
Avatar (LG)
Enigma of the Absolute (BP)

Within the Realm of a Dying Sun, 1987
Cantara (LG)
Anywhere Out of the World (BP)

The Serpent's Egg, 1988
Chant of the Paladin (LG)
Severance (BP)

Aion, 1990
This album never revealed itself to me as a whole. I think they went too wild on the medieval style. It contains Saltarello which back then used to be the only DCD many people knew.
Fortune Presents Gifts not According to the Book (BP)
Song of the Sybil (LG)

Into the Labyrinth, 1993
The Spider's Stratagem (LG)
How Fortunate The Man With None (BP)
Emmeleia (BP/LG)

Their incredible first Live album: Toward the Within, 1994
Yulunga (LG)
American Dreaming (BP) (All-time favourite of mine)
Rakim (BP/LG)

And finally: Spiritchaser, 1996
Indus (LG)
Song of the Dispossessed (BP)
The Snake and the Moon (BP/LG)

PS:
I wanted to do this for a while: a list of important/favorite DCD songs stressing the differences and togetherness of the two singers/composers.
Thank you clusterF for giving me a reason to do so.

Good for you for recognizing that!
People used to mistake DCD for a synth project, but in reality they just like very clear and precise sounds.
I've heard them live, it's incredible.
How they manage to pick this one up in such amazing sound quality - and that's just one example of all the instruments I saw on stage that night. Timpani being the most impressive, and that monkey of a drummer jumping around them (no disrespect, whoever you are).

Bit of a rarity to hear different and real instruments being played these days as most but not all musicians rely on synthetic digitized sounds.

I re-watched the movie Baraka awhile back after many years of course and researched who was responsible for song 4 of the film which led to DCD, so that was my first introduction.

"The Host of Seraphim" - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7iqxzURgQWg

or this version from the film Sad to think this is still ongoing.... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qdP32gL_40s

Neil Young - Old Man

It's rare to hear a banjo sound depressing, Deliverance depressing.

Steve Martin on the banjo, early seventies...

Re: What are you listening to right now?

Most likely, yes. Hard to say for sure due to the heavy reverb, I mean it could be a string tied to a washboard.

Yes, banjo or some other membrane-faced (my new hybrid word I just created) plucked instrument.

Not a fan of the Cowboy hats, but +10 for style.

What was this recording done on, a cell phone through a tunnel?

Soul Train rating of 6... it's got a good beat but you can't dance to it.

police, live, old (both them and the performance), great. In case I haven't said it before (I have) Stuart Copeland is my favorite drummer of all time. Andy summers is one of those guitarists who keep getting better with age.

-edit- Also the best power trio since The Jimi Hendrix Experience and until Sublime who, though great, pale in comparison to The Police in my mind. Hendrix beats them though in terms of innovation and influence. And by 10 years plus.

Sorry, that has organ and sax and conga. Here, Third Stone From The Sun from Are You Experienced. That is guitar, drums, bass, Hendrix making weird sounds into the mic with his voice, pedal effects and studio mixing-board effects, and that is all...

Re: What are you listening to right now?

Lol, Sting is known by his fellow musicians for playing slightly behind the beat, and here on World Running Down it takes him nearly half the song to lock in.

To be fair, Copeland and Summers take it at their old early eighties coke-fueled tempo, while Sting starts in Tantric Yoga mode.

Hendrix - Power To Love

Hendrix - We Gotta Live Together

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bt8En_gRJVw

These are essential listening, of course. It's Hendrix at the top of his game, with his own band, Band Of Gypsies, live, around 1970.

Great. Not even many pedal effects. Mitch Mitchell's drumming too.
