Following on from the release of their much-loved 2019 LP 'Wallop', !!! have now announced their plans for a new studio album, arriving in the coming months.
The new full-length 'Let It Be Blue' is being previewed by the new lead single 'Storm Around The World', which sees them team up with Sink Ya Teeth's Maria Uzor, and is set to be released on the 6th May via Warp Records.
Speaking about the new offering, the band said, "'Storm Around the World' is a song we’ve had since the last album that didn’t really come into focus until Maria Uzor from Sink Ya Teeth added her part and we turned it into a duet. Originally an acid workout about parents who leave on tour it became much more than that with her vocal, which is equal parts sing-song and spoken word and who’s lyrics helped add both a familiarity and a mystery to the song. On this record we were looking for basic minimal arrangements-- sub-bass, drums and vocals mostly-- and that approach is what finally let us support the vocal parts in a way that worked. The final piece was the beat that our producer Patrick Ford made that felt somewhere between programmed, sampled and played, a blurriness that is another feature of this album, Let It Be Blue, which was mostly built on computers but doesn’t always sound or feel that way."
