After teasing his next full-length record with digital single "Be My Own Pupil" late last year, Washington, DC-based 3024 label boss Martyn has finally announced his follow up to 2011's excellent Ghost People LP, a 10-track album called The Air Between Words. The record is set to arrive on June 16 via Ninja Tune, and will feature collaborations with inimitable UK producer Four Tet and former Hype Williams singer Inga Copeland (a.k.a. copeland). Martyn is said to explore "an entirely new sonic direction" on The Air Between Words, which he did through "experimentation with purely analogue sounds and equipment." The DJ/producer says of his upcoming LP, "Without the music being introspective, this is my most natural sounding album."
Before The Air Between Words drops this summer, its artwork and tracklist—which, oddly enough, doesn't include Martyn's "Be My Own Pupil" single—can be perused below; more info on the album is available here. Further more, Martyn has issued a brand-new mix for Mixmag today, which arrived with no tracklist, though it is said to be "packed with cuts off [The Air Between Words]." That sessions can be streamed and downloaded below.
