Back in May, Hebden surprise released a new EP under his Wingdings moniker ⣎⡇ꉺლ༽இ•̛)ྀ◞ ༎ຶ ༽ৣৢ؞ৢ؞ؖ ꉺლ. The EP contained four tracks, each with similar titles. A month earlier, the producer quietly shared a handful of new tracks to his SoundCloud page.
Alongside the new releases, he also shared an ethereal remix of Tame Impala’s ‘Is It True’.
Ahead of the spate of new releases, Hebden shared a huge Spotify playlist collating almost every track he’s been a part of in his career.
“I’ve been going through my archive finding old music that I worked on and photos,” Hebden explained on Instagram. “It made me wonder how much stuff is on Spotify that I’ve been part of so I put everything I could find in a playlist. It’s 526 tracks so far and there is a link to it in my bio.”
