Pantha Du Prince has announced his first solo LP for six years, as well as releasing a new track and accompanying video.
‘The Winter Hymn’ is accompanied by a self-directed video and features Queens. An album, entitled ‘The Triad’, will follow in May. The album – alongside ‘The Winter Hymn EP’ – is a return to solo work for Hendrick Weber, whose last release was an album created alongside The Bell Laboratory, entitled ‘Elements of Light’. His last largely solo release, ‘Black Noise’ came out in 2010.
Talking of the forthcoming album, Weber said:
“Black Noise was very much about me being alone in a small room in Berlin and composing. The Triad opens the structure to more human ways of interacting, not digitized ways of interacting. It’s not about Facebook; it’s about meeting up and jamming. I wanted to cut through the digital dust that surrounds us.”
