Daedelus Announces Upcoming LP for Brainfeeder, Streams Lead Single

Veteran beatmaker and former XLR8R podcast contributor Daedelus has announced that he will return to Flying Lotus' Brainfeeder imprint with a new album next month. The LA-based artist's forthcoming LP, The Light Brigade, reportedly arrives as the successor to his 2009 Righteous Fists of Harmony EP, which was inspired by the Boxer Rebellion, and recalls the Crimean war of 1853-56. According to a press release, "The music was written and recorded before the recent troubles broke out in that region, a turn of events which lends an air of requiem to the album."

Before The Light Brigade lands on September 30, Daedelus has made lead single "Onward" available to stream. The track is accurately described as a "haunting lament," in which melancholic vocals from ongoing collaborator Young Dad "wind their way through treated pianos and deep textures, creating a mournful ballad of noise." "Onward" is premiering in full below, where The Light Brigade's tracklist and Daedelus' forthcoming US tour dates have also been included.
