1 min read

Ukrainian composer Oleh Shpudeiko has announced a new album under his electronic moniker Heinali: Kyiv Eternal is out February 24 via Injazero. The LP is a tribute to Ukraine and the city he loves. Listen to the album’s title song below.

“After the Battle of Kyiv was over, many Kyivites noticed this strange feeling,” said Shpudeiko in a statement. “It was as if the city was alive, breathing. We wanted to hug it, to protect every inch of it from harm. I didn’t know how to do it back then. It took time and distance to figure it out, but Kyiv Eternal is my hug.”

Kyiv Eternal spans 11 songs in total. The album artwork features a photo of a monument to Petro Konashevych-Sahaidachny—a 16th-century Ukrainian political, military, and civic leader—wrapped up to protect it from the Russian bombs. “Kyiv Eternal is a farewell to this place in time and space to which none of us will ever be able to return,” explained Shpudeiko. “It is a place that will only exist in our memories.”
