Initially released digitally as part of the Adult Swim Singles Program in 2014, SLEEP’s “The Clarity” is the first new track the band released since their critically-adored, 1998-released Dopesmoker album.

Having been out-of-print in physical format since, Southern Lord will now re-release the mammoth track for official distribution.
