Published Mar 30, 2016A couple of years on from putting his Faith in Strangers on display, Manchester electronics explorer Andy Stott has returned to deliver another solo LP. His fifth full-length is titled Too Many Voices, and you can hear it all on April 22 through Modern Love.
A press release explains that this latest, nine-song collection was crafted over the course of the last 18 months, with Stott said to be flirting with elements of grime, electronic music, modern chamber pieces and more. Touchstones include Yellow Magic Orchestra, This Mortal Coil and Dead Can Dance.
Drafted into the LP for vocal duties was longtime collaborator Alison Skidmore, who contributes to half of the record. Her voice is said to be surrounded by "beautiful synth washes" on "Over," while it's also apparently channelling a "dystopian breakdown" on the album's "Selfish."
Below, you'll find the new, city streets-scouring, foot-fluttering music video for wavy Too Many Voices track "Butterflies," as well as the album's tracklisting details. That's its elegant, leading lines-laden cover art up above.
