Ascendant UK house star Laurence Blake (a.k.a. Citizenn) has announced that he'll release his debut album this summer via Damian Lazarus's Crosstown Rebels imprint. Entitled Human Interface, the record is said to be unabashedly technology-obsessed, concerning itself, in the Midlands-born artist's own words, with "its omnipresence in our daily lives and how we have become completely dependent upon it to survive.”
Crosstown Rebels will also drop the album's lead single "Tied" in May, and for now have made the track available to stream. The reliably old-school vocal house of "Tied" can be heard in full on the player below ahead of its release on May 18 as part of an EP that will include remixes from Murk, Adesse Versions and Denney. The Human Interface LP, meanwhile, will see the light of day on June 15.
