Chromatics' member Johnny Jewel has a pleasant surprise for everyone out there that loved their latest LP Kill for Love with 35 minutes of unreleased material from the album. Containing eight songs recorded from November 2009 to December 2011, Running From the Sun is what Jewel describes as the result of being "[j]et lagged & buzzing from Friday’s show in Paris..." He continues, saying:
I couldn’t sleep…so I stayed up all night with Oko talking about color based dreams while blending these tracks together. Since the album came out, a lot of people on the road have been telling us they are curious to hear some of the unreleased music from the Kill For Love sessions…Recorded November 2009 through December 2011, these songs were all mixed between 4 & 6 a.m. After hours of tracking at the studio in Montreal, we’d clear the channels on the mixer, open a bottle of wine, & feel around in the dark…working our way through the atmospheric elements & peeling back layers of rhythm…throwing the songs into the abstract pile & playing them while driving home in the snow. In Amsterdam right now trying to upload it from the hotel. Fingers crossed…"
