Temples have announced details of ‘Sun Restructured’, a remixed version of their debut album ‘Sun Structures’, as well as details of a UK tour to take place later this year.
The Kettering band’s debut album was released in February. The new ‘re-animated’ version, helmed by Erol Alkan and Richard Norris under their Beyond The Wizard’s Sleeve guise, will be released on November 10.
Speaking about his work on ‘Sun Restructured’, which uses remixed versions of album tracks ‘Sand Dance’, ‘Shelter Song’, ‘A Question Isn’t Answered’, ‘The Golden Throne’ and ‘Move With The Season’, Alkan said: “Being asked to re-animate a whole album’s worth of material is an honour. We wanted to create something special. A record which could be listened to in one go, from start to finish, a listening experience that is becoming increasingly rare. So as well as a host of full Beyond The Wizard’s Sleeve re-animations here, there are interludes, ambience, ebb and flow… each section flowing into a bigger piece. We tried many things along the way – spoken word sections, days out collecting field recordings – yet ended up letting the original songs and their beautiful arrangements and melodies guide us.”
