Billboard shares David Duchovny’s newest single right before he goes on his New Zealand/Australia tour.
Award winning actor David Duchovny has returned on multiple fronts in 2018. With the reprisal of his role as Fox Mulder on the The X-Files on Jan. 3rd, the multi-talented Duchovny also shared some new tunes. Duchovny’s upcoming album Every Third Thought is due for release on Feb. 9 and the alt-rocker released the ethereal single “Half-Life” today (Jan. 22) in promotion of the upcoming LP.
Equipped with blaring riffs, a crooning synth melody, and a gentle acoustic guitar, the sci-fi actor’s album mixes love and science, with Duchovny singing subtly about the unconditional love. “Unconditional love decays, only fossilized hearts can break. Every piece is indivisible.”
“I find poetry in science,” Duchovny told Billboard. “Things like The Heisenberg principle or Schroedinger’s cat — things like this. The phrase half life and the fact that it refers to radioactive decay or decay struck me as a poetic and wonderfully ambiguous place to start a song about life and love.”
Along with the release of the album, Duchovny is set to embark on a short tour across Australia and New Zealand. The tour begins on Feb. 20 in Auckland, NZ and concludes on Mar. 1 in Brisbane, AU.
