Plaid Announces Seventh Studio Album for Warp, Shares Lead Single
- Words: James Eaton
Veteran London production duo Plaid has once again emerged from dormancy to announce its seventh proper studio album (or its tenth full-length record, if we're counting soundtrack work) for the equally venerable electronic music institution Warp. The nine-track Reachy Prints is set to arrive on May 20, nearly three years after Andy Turner's and Ed Handley's previous album, Scintilli, and is said to sound something like "a journey into a subterranean world," while also maintaining the duo's "trademark emotive, yet playful, signature style." Before Plaid's latest LP arrives in late spring, we're treated to a stream of its lead single, the highly melodic electronic composition "Hawkmoth." That song can be heard below, where the artwork and tracklist for Reachy Prints is also included.
