Simian Mobile Disco announce new album 'Whorl', preview lead single

Techno mavericks Simian Mobile Disco have announced that a new album is on the way later this year.

The new full-length 'Whorl' is the pair's first new record since 2012's 'Unpatterns', and is expected to receive a full release on the 9th September.

Talking on the album, Jas Shaw explained, “The recordings we did in the studio while we were writing and rehearsing the new material for Whorl were simply “live” takes - the system we’re using has limited ability to save patterns in the sequencer, but nothing like the flexibility of a computer."

“Live performance and studio composition are essentially now the same process, rather than the common method of writing a track using the computer, and then working out ways to perform it live. We planned not to slavishly limit ourselves just to this performance - when we came to mixdown the album, we used portions of three sessions – the show itself, an extended jam we did in the desert the day before, and a little of our London studio rehearsal.”

You can check out the album's full tracklist and stream a portion of the first single 'Tangents' below.
