Chelsea Wolfe has shared “The Culling,” the final and most expansive single from her upcoming album Hiss Spun. Stretching out to six minutes, the track begins with a tense atmosphere of foreboding, slowly growing into a dense mass of guitar, bass, electronics, and drums. Hiss Spun, Wolfe’s sixth album, is out September 22nd on Sargent House.

STREAM: CHELSEA WOLFE – “THE CULLING”

Of “The Culling” Wolfe says, “I’m at odds with myself, exploring different characters, comparing war stories…desperation, withdrawal, clarity, disgust, grief.

There is a sense of feeling like a vulnerable mess, but giving into that and turning it into some kind of beautiful decadence; becoming stronger through accepting the mess of yourself…accepting that you’re this feral creature full of instincts, cycles, rage and love.”

She also defined the four words she repeats at the end of the song:

Flux – movement, flow
Hiss – positive life force
Welt – brutality of life
Groan – sensuality, death

Each single from Hiss Spun that Wolfe has shared has offered a glimpse at a different side of the record, from the doomy “16 Psyche” to the hazy “Offering.” Check them each out below.
