Soulwax announce first new album in 12 years, recorded in just one take

'From Deewee' will be released in March

Soulwax have announced details of their first new album in 12 years – and it was recorded live all in one take.

Last year saw the band return with new track ‘Transient Program For Drums And Machinery’ and announce a UK and European tour. Now, the Dewaele brothers have shared news of the long-awaited follow-up to 2005’s ‘Nite Versions’. Their last release was the compilation soundtrack for 2016’s ‘Belgica’.

‘FROM DEEWEE’ was recorded in their own studio in Ghent, Belgium on February 7 2017 and will be released on March 24. Check out the artwork below.
