Information

Originally called STT Interstitial 2, the song was written for the Simulation Theory World Tour, as an intro to Algorithm and only the first half of the song was played via tape. The song, in full, was released as "Behold, The Glove" on August 28th, 2020, after its inclusion in the Simulation Theory Film.

The official release of the song was teased by Matt via various short Instagram clips of him on a horse with the "Power Glove" in the middle of a desert.

Additional Information

The studio version of the song features an extension to the instrumental first part with a slow 80s drum pattern, reminiscent of synthwave songs. The song has also been compared to Jean Michel Jarre.

The song was mixed and mastered by Aleks Von Korff.
