The follow-up to 2017’s New Energy is out in March
This morning Four Tet followed up on his tweet from yesterday, in which he just stated “the new album is done,” by sharing a photo of a sticky note with the album title, track listing and release date.
Due out in March of this year Sixteen Oceans will include a fitting sixteen new songs and marks Kieran Hebden’s first new album since 2017’s New Energy. That’s not to say he hasn’t been keeping busy though. Last year he shared a pair of live albums as well as a three-track project, Anna Painting, and a few singles like “Dreamer,” “Teenage Birdsong” and his Nelly Furtado remix “Only Human.”
Dan Snaith of Caribou who announced his own comeback album last month also commented on the announcement adding “It’s always a good year when Kieran and I release albums close to one another…”
Make sure to listen to Four Tet’s “Only Human,” which made our 30 Best Songs of 2019.
