According to Blabbermouth, the official lyric video for "Cornucopia", a brand new song from singer, songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, poet and political activist Serj Tankian, has been released (see the video below). The track, which is also available for free download at SerjTankian.com (e-mail sign-up required), comes off Serj's new studio album, "Harakiri", due on July 10 via Reprise Records/Serjical Strike.
"Harakiri", a Japanese word meaning ritual suicide, is the follow-up to 2010's critically acclaimed "Imperfect Harmonies", and the third solo release from the System Of A Down frontman. As with 2007's "Elect The Dead" and "Imperfect Harmonies", Serj produced "Harakiri" himself at his home studio in Los Angeles.
He tried to approach writing a little differently this time around. "I used the Apple iPad as a songwriting instrument to sketch out three of the songs on the record," explains Serj. "We must trick ourselves into writing in different ways to get unexpected results."
The album will also feature performances by Serj's touring band, The F.C.C.Dan Monti on guitar, Mario Pagliarulo on bass, and Troy Zeigler on drums. Dan Monti is also co-mixing and co-engineering the album with Serj. The album was mastered by Vlado Meller (Metallica, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Kanye West, Beastie Boys).
