Published Nov 04, 2013Last month, prolific folk experimentalists Current 93 revealed plans to issue an LP titled I Am the Last of All the Field That Fell: A Channel, and now we know when to expect the album to arrive. It will be up for sale at a UK concert on February 8, with an official in-store date of March 3, through band leader David Tibet's Coptic Cat imprint.
The record will be the band's first full-length since 2011's HoneySuckle Æons, and though a tracklisting has yet to appear, a press release notes that the album will apparently be "68, 69, 70 and 71 minutes long." Tibet noted, "more details on why it may hop and skip different Time" will arrive at a later date.
In addition to Tibet, the assembly of musicians on I Am the Last of All the Field That Fell: A Channel includes big names like Nick Cave, Antony and the Johnsons singer Antony Hegarty, and progressive sax master John Zorn. Other contributors include James Blackshaw, Andrew Liles, Tony McPhee, Bobbie Watson, Carl Stokes, Jon Seagroatt, Norbert Kox, Reinier van Houdt, Ossian Brown and These New Puritans' Jack Barnett.
The album launch takes place at London's Union Chapel on February 8, and the show will also serve as the release party for Tibet's Sing Omega lyric book.
