††† (Crosses), the synth-rock project helmed by Deftones' Chino Moreno and Far guitarist Shaun Lopez, have a surprise Christmas gift for us all: the group's first new music since their 2014 self-titled album. It's a drama-soaked cover of "The Beginning of the End" by Nineties electropop outfit Cause & Effect, and it comes at the close of a big year for Moreno, who both released a new Deftones LP, Ohms — Revolver's pick for 2020's best — and celebrated the 20th anniversary of his main band's White Pony with a major reissue featuring a star-studded remix album, Black Stallion. Listen above via the single's music video; you can buy or stream the track here.
