Pioneering electronic musician Squarepusher has shared a brand new single, announced a new album for early 2020 and a string of tour dates across the UK and beyond, Getintothis’ Gary Aster has the news.
Squarepusher will return with a long-awaited album Be Up A Hello, released on the 31st of January, and his new single, “Nervelevers,” is out now.
Nervelevers breakneck breakbeats recall classic moments from Squarepusher’s much-loved catalogue which, coupled with its blistering acid line, also exemplifies the influence of his formative years in the Essex rave scene.
It’s certainly an abrupt shift away from his most recent offerings, providing an ambient soundtrack for CBeebies hour long wind-down programme Daydreams.
This new single promises a return to what we know and love, much more of a head in a washing machine on the full-spin vibe for the new album, which will be his seventeenth, a staggering number.
In addition to his worldwide tour, the dates of which we have below, WARP and Rough Trade are hosting a Be Up A Hello album launch party at London’s Five Miles on Saturday, February 1st.
Those who pre-order a CD, vinyl or t-shirt are guaranteed entry to an exclusive DJ set from Squarepusher and special guests from 8pm all the way through to the wee small hours.
A bonus track and 1-hour mix of unreleased Squarepusher material has already been shared with those who have pre-ordered the album, anyone who pre-orders from Squarepusher.net, Bleep.com or buys the physical release from any other stores will also be able to access these downloads.
Not a bad offer.
