Oneohtrix Point Never Announces New 12" for Record Store Day, Preps World Tour

With Record Store Day creeping around the corner on April 19, artists in every corner of the musical landscape are announcing the special items they'll be offering exclusively through brick-and-mortar shops. We've already found out about The Field's landmark debut LP being reissued on the annual occasion, and the latest announcement to perk up our ears is a 12" that will arrive from Warp experimentalist Oneohtrix Point Never. The three-track record is called Commissions I, and, as its title implies, is a collection of works that Brooklyn producer Daniel Lopatin was commissioned to do over the years for artwork, performance, and film, including a cover of pop song "I Only Have Eyes for You."

Available on April 19, OPN's new 12" will be packaged in a black foil-print jacket with a die-cut view of its inner sleeve, and will be followed by a lengthy world tour with stops in Japan, North America, Europe, the UK, and more dates to be added. The details of that string of performances can be found below, where the tracklist and information for Commissions I can be found along with a stream of opening cut "Music For Steamed Rocks."


A1 "Music For Steamed Rocks" (Composed by Daniel Lopatin for Witold Lutosławski's Preludes at Polish Icons 2, Sacrum Profanum, 2013)
A2 "Meet Your Creator" (Composed by Daniel Lopatin for Quadrotor performance at Saatchi & Saatchi New Directors' Showcase, 2012)
B1 "I Only Have Eyes For You" (Composed by Harry Warren and Al Dubin (Remick Music Corp). Cover commissioned for the SONG1 Happening installation event by Doug Aitken at the Hirshhorn Museum, 2012)
