Mike Lindsay collaborates with Anna B Savage on 'table'

With his eagerly-awaited debut solo album set to arrive in the coming months, Mike Lindsay has now dropped the next cut to be lifted from his forthcoming full-length.

The new single 'table' sees him team up with Anna B Savage for the release, and follows on from the previously shared tracks 'lie down' and 'kachumber' in previewing the new LP 'supershapes volume 1', which is out on the 14th June via Moshi Moshi.

Speaking about the new collaboration, Savage said, "I asked Mike to send me a big email with his current preoccupations and niggling thoughts. He sent back a tome, with a section about panpsychism. Panpsychism is (to put it horribly simply, forgive me) the idea that every object in the world has a consciousness of some sort, no matter how ‘unimaginably simple’ that consciousness might be. Mike had been thinking about this phenomenon particularly in relation to a dining table he bought second hand. He said it was one hundred and twenty two years old, “so for 122 years people have sat around… and shared stories, or experiences with each other”. Obviously this is a fantastically evocative thought, so when I came in to record I ran with that, imagining a series of vignettes around the table. Hopefully evoking the real beauty in the mundanity of a life around an object. And then at the end, the table is afforded a more specific consciousness: “what does the table think of you?”

"Working with Mike on his supershapes project will forever be one of my favourite endeavours. Any excuse to work with him more was gonna be leapt on by me, and in particular to think he wanted me to work on something is just too much for my little heart to handle. We had (and have) so much fun. What more could you want."
