The track signals a triumphant rebirth after nearly eight years since their last LP. The song and its accompanying music video are out now via Capitol Records.

“Changes” ushers in a new chapter for Empire of the Sun, embodying their unwavering commitment to crafting ethereal soundscapes that resonate on levels both serious and playful.

As Lord Littlemore explained, “‘Changes’ represents the shifting sands of time, empires rise and fall but the sun shall shine on. Come once more into the world we’ve created, delve deeper within and be rewarded with its ever-expanding story, each and every one is invited to explore the new era.”

The duo also shared their insights on the genesis of “Changes”: “‘Changes’ was a breakthrough track for us. It felt like the moment of clarity when it became evident we were in the new era, our time of rebirth, the next chapter of Empire.”

The accompanying video, directed by acclaimed filmmaker Michael Maxxis, is an immersive journey into surreal realms. Maxxis, known for his evocative storytelling and striking visual aesthetic, collaborated closely with the band to craft a narrative that explores the power of imagination and the quest for self- discovery.

Filmed amidst the breath-taking landscapes of Thailand, Empire of the Sun and Michael Maxxis invite audiences to embark on a visually stunning, cinematic odyssey, one that will captivate and enthrall viewers with its otherworldly allure.
