This is the Motion Picture Collection.
Motionless In White have released two tracks from what they are calling the 'Motion Picture Collection'.
Chock full of swirling strings and building atmospheres, the band have taken some of their most pulsating anthems and made them sound like they belong on a movie soundtrack.
They have also pulled in some guest vocals to add an extra layer of drama.
The band have delivered this message:
“With all of the down time of not touring, we wanted to take the opportunity to try something we’ve never done before. We give you, ‘Eternally Yours: Motion Picture Collection’ (Feat Crystal Joilena) & ‘Another Life: Motion Picture Collection’ (Feat Kerli). Thank you to Crystal and Kerli for your amazing vocals that helped transform these versions into something truly special. Thank you to Justin Deblieck for your ever-brilliant talents that shine so bright throughout these tracks, and thank you to Steve Sopchack for your keen ear and dedication to mixing this project. We hope you all enjoy and are still staying safe out there.”
Vocalist Chris Motionless has also offered up a little explanation to what these songs meant to him:
"I wrote these 2 songs for someone. For the only person to have ever truly seen me beyond my flesh and blood, and beyond the disguise. These songs are love letters. They not the fictional stories I have to divert them as, in an effort to relieve myself from trusting the terrifying reality of how these experiences were dismantling the walls I had so cruelly constructed around myself to resist love at all costs. They are a telling of the depth in which two people were able to transcend their physical form and gaze into the soul of one another, embracing their infinite bon that defies any human understand or measurability. They are a reflection of the past and the high that was only truly realised once I fell to the bottom. They are a reflection of the present, and the regret and sorrow that will ever be in bloom as I confront and accept that in what could have been, I chose to abandon. These lyrics are an admission. These lyrics are an apology. When the beast become the man without the moon and stars, these are the word that in both the presents and absence of the brightest I’ve ever know…I wish I had shined back.
Though my physical self walks alone, my soul is now as it was then, in this life and every other, eternally hers."
My feelings on the Another Life/Eternally Yours Motion Picture Collection attached. Thank you to @iceninejd @kerlimusic and @CrystalJoilena for helping me tell these stories better than I ever could have alone. https://t.co/RN6zcSu1xr pic.twitter.com/jv89J17JZZ— Chris Motionless (@ChrisMotionless) August 10, 2020
