Sleep Token Take Me Back To Eden: Everything We Know About The Album

After the release of the previous singles “Chokehold“, “The Summoning”, Granite, and Aqua Regia, fans were up in a frenzy again waiting for an album announcement from Sleep Token.

Fortunately all of their obsessive worshipping wasn’t in vein. The highly-anticipated third Sleep Token Album “Take Me Back To Eden” has officially been announced with the release of their fifth offering, “Vore“.

Now let’s jump on in and breakdown everything we know about the upcoming Sleep Token Take Me Back To Eden album including the tracklist, release date, and more!

Sleep Token – Take Me Back To Eden

To say the least, Sleep Token have kicked off the year by having what is no doubt the biggest month of their career thus far, and it has all led up to this.

After going from 280,000 monthly listeners on Spotify to over 2,000,000 in only a month, getting a shoutout from the likes of Demi Lovato, and becoming the most viral song on Spotify, Sleep Token have finally announced their highly-anticipated third chapter “Take Me Back To Eden“.

To sum up the announcement, I want to share the Take Me Back To Eden album description from Impericon. I find it to be well-written, thought-provoking, and composed in a style fitting for a Sleep Token album.

Take Me Back To Eden Album Description:

“With fan worship more intense than ever, and worldwide interest and intrigue growing at runaway speed, Sleep Token are set to reach bold new heights with studio album Number Three. 

‘Take Me Back To Eden’ (an hour-plus of music across 12 distinctive tracks) is Part 3 of a trilogy, a spectacular chapter-closer in the ongoing Sleep Token saga – a saga that kicked off in earnest with debut album, ‘Sundowning’ (2019). 

What comes next, only time will tell, but what’s certain is that it won’t be bound by convention any more than ‘…Eden’, which features probably the heaviest moments thus far recorded by Sleep Token (i.e. ‘Chokehold’ & ‘The Summoning’), along with some of the most commercial and certainly the most emotional, with a slew of other tones, textures and tangents touched on in-between. 

‘TMBTE’ sees Sleep Token boldly re-confirming a true love of the epic (the title track is eight minutes plus), whilst further exploring and developing those elements that keep the music removed from any kind of pack, howling at a moon that’s all its own.

Everything We Know About Take Me Back To Eden

Sleep Token Take Me Back To Eden Sacred Guardians

Take Me Back To Eden is one of the most exciting album cycles I have witnessed in a long-time. 

From the captivating art direction, to the “ancient guardians” corresponding to each album track, to the non-conventional single release schedule, there is a lot to take in here.

As for the sound of the album, it really speaks for itself. Sleep Token have displayed a diversity of sounds across the five revealed singles, masterfully tackling each style they tackle.

Take Me Back To Eden Is A Diverse, Genre-Bending Collection

We have the soaring Chokehold, the crushing – yet surprisingly funky – The Summoning, the dark and pop-driven Granite, the jazzy Aqua Regia, and the haunting – blackgaze-influenced – Vore. Each of these tracks show Sleep Token tackle a new element, and so far the mysterious band have excelled at each of their ventures.

Judging by the album description from Impericon, the album will be diverse in full. The album description also mentions that Take Me Back To Eden may just be Sleep Token’s heaviest effort, as well as most accessible work, all at once.

Sleep Token Boldly Dive Into The Epic

Additionally, the Take Me Back To Eden tracklist contains three tracks with impressive lengths. These tracks are “The Summoning” (06:35), “Ascensionism” (07:08) and the title track “Take Me Back To Eden” (08:20). 

As the album description reveals, Sleep Token are even boldly diving into the epic, with the title track being their lengthiest track to date.

If The Summoning gave us a taste of what to expect from Ascensionism and Take Me Back To Eden, then we are surely in for a bite of something legendary.

As for the collective runtime, the whole Take Me Back To Eden album clocks in at (63:28), which makes it over an hour long in length!

The Third – And Final – Installment Of A Trilogy

Take Me Back To Eden is reportedly the third – and final- chapter in a trilogy of Sleep Token albums. This is the conclusion of the current Sleep Token saga, but supposedly also the beginning of something new.

The Saga began with their first record “Sundowning” and continued with their sophomore effort “This Place Will Become Your Tomb“.

These albums all coalescing into one cohesive saga makes sense, as there are countless repeating themes and sounds across all of these chapters.

What comes next for Sleep Token is surely as mysterious as the band itself, but only time can tell what this entails.
