The Cult's 'Deeply Ordered Chaos' Lyric Video Inspired By Paris Attacks (Week in Review)
"'Deeply Ordered Chaos' was written after events in Paris in January this year," Astbury tells Billboard. "We chose to depict scenes of wild life and outer space to provide a counterpoint to the wave of violent images we are constantly bombarded with and acknowledge the profoundness of being. This is also in response to events in Paris on Nov. 13.
"I have performed at Le Bataclan on four occasions and am deeply shocked and moved by what occurred that evening and have empathy for all those that have been affected by these twisted and hollow actions."
The song's title came from the late Irish painter Francis Bacon, who stated "I believe in deeply ordered chaos." "His work and philosophy have had a profound affect on my life," adds Astbury.
Produced by Bob Rock and due February 5, The Cult's 10th studio album is the third and final installment in a trilogy of recordings that began with 2007's "Born Into This" and 2012's "Choice Of Weapon." Watch the video - here.
