Published Jul 23, 2014Yesterday (July 22), UK producer SBTRKT announced his sophomore LP, Wonder Where We Land. Though he's often been mysterious in the past, he's decided to let loose the full details of the LP one day later.
Wonder Where We Land features 15 new tracks from the artist. The album's recording sessions began on Osea Island, a small island off Essex, where SBTRKT would sketch out songs and collaborate with Sampha, Koreless and Caroline Polachek through the night. The artists would collaborate and record every impulse while animations were projected on the walls.
From there, the producer travelled to Los Angeles and New York in search of more collaborations. The final album features the aforementioned three artists, as well as Raury, Ezra Koenig of Vampire Weekend, Jessie Ware and A$AP Ferg, among others. All of these guests ended up on the final LP. In addition to the previously released "Temporary View," there are three other collaborations with Sampha.
"With this album I wanted to bring a wider, immersive storyline without losing the simplicity of the song," SBTRKT said in a press release. "I wanted to let go of the rules that dictate a certain genre or aesthetic and create something unique to the people I'm collaborating with at the time."
Young Turks will issue Wonder Where We Land on September 22. The album can be pre-ordered here in its standard edition or here for the deluxe iteration.
