Altin Gün Share “Güzelliğin On Para Etmez”

Grammy Award-nominated Turkish psych-folk innovators Altın Gün have shared their deeply atmospheric new single, “Güzelliğin On Para Etmez”. Written and composed by the highly regarded Turkish poet Âşık Veysel, “Güzelliğin On Para Etmez” heralds the arrival of Altın Gün’s eagerly anticipated new album, Aşk, arriving via ATO Records on Friday, March 10.

Aşk sees Altın Gün veering away from the electronic, synth-drenched sound of their critically acclaimed 2021 albums, Âlem and Yol, to capture all the infectious power and urgency of the Amsterdam-based band’s famously propulsive live performances. Recorded using vintage equipment and techniques, the album’s ten groundbreaking tracks all represent visionary new readings of traditional Turkish folk tunes, revealing how these ancient songs remain eternally resonant and ripe for reinterpretation.

“These songs have been covered so many times, always,” says vocalist/keyboardist Merve Dasdemir.

“But not really in psychedelic pop versions,” adds bassist Jasper Verhulst. “It’s definitely connecting more with a live sound – almost like a live album. We, as a band, just going into a rehearsal space together and creating music together instead of demoing at home.”
