French producer Franz Kirman will release his third album, Elysian Park, tomorrow, October 21 via Denovali.

Elysian Park is the London-based artist's second for the German imprint, and was born from ‘Hyper Trophies,‘ a 2012 crossover art and fashion project Kirmann soundtracked—created by Berlin art studio Zeitguised—which "consisted of three endless video loops presented in a vertical format, showing unemotional female models floating amongst nocturnal backdrops, evoking ghostly figures in some apocalyptical wastelands." It's an album that looks to the future with no boundaries. There's no traditional structures or destination apparent; the music seems to occupy a humanless world with barely-there melodies and no regular beats to hold on to. It's music that demands your attention and confronts your preconceptions.

Denovali releases the album officially tomorrow—you can preorder it here—and to give you a taste of what's to come, the label has offered up LP cut "Killswitch / Darknet" as today's XLR8R download—available via WeTransfer below.
