Hercules & Love Affair Sign to Mute
- Words: Wyatt Williams
Hercules & Love Affair, the DFA recording project of Brooklyn producer Andrew Butler which notably features Antony Hegarty of Antony and The Johnsons, will have its debut album released domestically by Mute Records on June 24. The album, co-produced by DFA's Tim Goldsworthy, is a concoction of disco anthems and house music production that has already garnered enthusiastic admiration since it's March 10 U.K. release.
Butler's orgiastic dance numbers are treated with guest vocals from his New York art scene friends Nomi, Kim Ann, and the aforementioned Antony, who contributes vocals to half of the album's 10 tracks. The lead single, "Blind," which has already been treated with a bacchanalian music video, will be released May 27.
