Maps announces Death In Vegas-produced new album
Maps is planning to release a new album in September.

The singer, aka James Chapman, has recorded 'Turning The Mind' with Death In Vegas' Tim Holmes at his Contino Rooms studio in London.

The album is the follow-up to his Mercury Prize-shortlisted 2007 debut 'We Can Create'. The tracklisting and exact release date of the album is yet to be released.

"'Turning The Mind' is essentially an album which explores themes related to the human mind and the way certain stimuli, particularly chemical, can affect the mind in different ways," Chapman said in a statement.

He added: "A recurring theme throughout the album is that of the 'journey of extremes'. An example of this could be from 'depression' to 'euphoria' (or 'abyss' to 'bliss', if you like)."

Maps' second album includes the recent single 'Let Go The Fear', a one-off collaboration with renowned Berlin based producer/DJ Oliver Huntemann and Holmes.

The star is also set to perform at this year's Latitude Festival on July 18 and at Bestival on September 13.
