On Lost Time, Preston fuses the elements from his two previous albums—2014's Somnus and last years Illusion of the Tale—both of which focused on more ambient styles, with the sub-bass grooves and melodies of his older material and a raft of live instrumentation processes explored over the last few years. The tracks are highly-emotive outings that were created following a rough few years in the music industry and while pondering the concept of making up for lost time, as Preston explains:
"It was mostly written towards the end of 2014 and early 2015. It does feel like it’s drawing a line under a very frustrating few years in the industry, and to me is a sign that I can get back to making music and letting people hear it in the way I want.
I think the title also refers to the fact we’re all guilty of saying we’ll make up for ‘lost time’ in so many areas of life. I think it just refers to the fact that we never can, whether it’s neglecting our friends and family, missed opportunities or just a general sense of regret as to how we’ve spent our time when looking back and reminiscing.”
In support of the album, Preston has offered up a beautiful bonus cut, titled "To The Sky," as today's XLR8R download, available via WeTransfer below.
