Duo air track from forthcoming album
Leftfield have previewed another track from their long-awaited second album on the much-talked-about new Guinness advert.
‘Phat Planet’ is taken from the still-untitled follow-up to 1995’s ‘Leftism’ album and provides the soundtrack to giant horses emerging from the sea.
The song will be made available as DJ promo copies only in the next couple of months but may be released as a single later on in the year.
Leftfield, aka Neil Barnes and Paul Daley, have already previewed album track ‘Swords’ to the soundtrack of the new film by ‘Swingers’ director Doug Liman.
The soundtrack to ‘Go’ is now available on Higher Ground. The first single from the new album is still scheduled to be ‘Afrika Shox’, a collaboration with Afrika Bambatta.
Accompanied by a video directed by Chris Cunningham, the man responsible for Aphex Twin‘s recent controversial ‘Windowlicker’ video, the song is slated for release in July.
Leftfield are now finishing off mixes of ‘Afrika Shox’ at studios in Notting Hill, London.
The duo are still deciding on album titles and artwork for the new album which has a provisional release date of September 6.
A spokeswoman for Leftfield told NME: “Everything’s going brilliantly.
“The album is finished, but it’s all about setting it up now.
“When we did the last record it was finished in November and out the next January.
“Now they’re such a big act we need time to set things up separately.”
Leftfield will not be playing any festivals this year, although live dates around the time of the album release are possible.
