Four Tet announced just last month that the follow up for his tremendous 2013 release Beautiful Rewind would be dropping this July, but in the current climate of surprise releases, he has gone and pulled a Beyonce/Drake/Kendrick Lamar/A$AP Rocky and suddenly dropped it much earlier than anticipated.
Available for streaming and purchasing now on his Bandcamp, Morning/Evening is a two-track, yet full length LP that is stunning from the first listen. And the second. And the third… Physical copies of the LP will be available from July 10.
This isn’t the first surprise release of the year for the producer – real name Kieran Hebden. He also dropped a surprise album earlier this year under his Percussions moniker. He has also been working with a variety of collaborators recently, including Omar Souleyman and Rome Fortune, further cementing his reputation as one of the more prolific but consistently great producers around at the moment.
Four Tet announced the release this morning via a just-as-surprisingly hilarious Instagram video. Check the video and the album stream below, and settle in for 40 minutes of pure Four Tet bliss.
