1. Navigate, Navigate

A musical Fin de siècle.
Young mystics and chanters let the eternal beat run through them for twelve minutes, and rock and roll finally leaves the 20th century…
In January 2007, These New Puritans were invited to soundtrack the 2007-8
Autumn Collection for Dior Homme. Commissioned by creative
director Hedi Slimane, the resulting 'Navigate, Navigate' – which ran 
for the full length of the 16-minute show – was composed, recorded,
and produced by the band in just over a week.

Singer/guitarist/producer Jack Barnett: "It's a pop song. But I cringe when ever anyone sings anything in a straightforward, meaningful way; so the lyrics are all about cyphers and codes and things like that. Before now our longest song was just over 3 minutes, this one is over 12 minutes."
