Procol Harum To Release Three-Song EP ‘Missing Persons’
Esoteric Antenna has announced that legendary English rock band Procol Harum will release a new three-song EP, Missing Persons.
Missing Persons was completed during lockdown after founder and lead singer Gary Brooker rediscovered a CD of rough mixes of two studio tracks the band had laid down during a previous session.
“They weren’t written last week, neither are they old” said Brooker.
The precise date of the original recordings remains a mystery.
The title track “Missing Persons (Alive Forever)” is a particularly poignant and emotive song, and a fine example of the musical tradition of Procol Harum.
“Keith Reid‘s lyrics sound incredibly apt for the time we’re living in, this is the sound of Procol Harum today,” said Brooker.
The EP’s other new song “War Is Not Healthy” is also a touching observation of war and its impact on humanity.
The third track is “Missing Persons (Alive Forever) (Edited Version)”.
