Empire of the Sun Ice On The Dune

Luke Steele aka Emperor Steele and Nick Littlemore aka Lord Littlemore will release the album in June.

In true Empire of the Sun style the album is described as:

Once, the world was pure. It was the Emperor and the Prophet who kept it thus. Each day, they charted the sun’s course across the sky, guided rivers down from mountain peaks, brought rains to quench raging fires.
With the aid of their four priests, who possessed spirits of wild animals, they travelled the world tirelessly, maintaining nature’s delicate balance, allowing all things to grow and flourish — always with the aid of the sacred jewel held atop the Emperor’s crown…

But one night, as the Emperor slumbered, recovering from his labors, true darkness appeared. The King of Shadows, ever the bitter foe of the Empire, and all it had achieved, crept into their temple. Craving the Emperor’s power, he stole the jewel from his crown– and in an instant the world was changed.

Robbed of the bulk of his power, the Emperor and the Prophet watched helplessly as their temple was torn asunder, and their priests cast far out into the world.

But even in that moment, when all appeared lost, there was one thing that the King of Shadows’ black heart simply could not have imagined… The Emperor and the Prophet had never abandoned hope.

Luke Steele is from The Sleepy Jackson. Nick Littlemore fronts PNau and recently released the ‘Good Morning To The Night’ album with Elton John.
