The pair met at the Tate Modern in 2017, where Tillmans was programming a series of performances, and the recording of the six-track EP followed soon after and was recorded in Berlin, London, and Turin, melding Tillman's vocals with Powell's production.
Composed with modular synthesizers and digital signal processing, the EP provided a liberating experience for Powell, lifting his own expectations, as he explains: “Recording the EP was almost the process of losing the expectations that might be placed upon myself. People have described it as a vulnerable record, and that transparency and honesty is how I felt making it. It made me feel very out of my comfort zone, but I think working with Wolfgang has pushed me to trust myself more. To feel more.”
Ahead of the release, XL Recordings has shared a taste of the EP in "Feel The Night," available to stream below.
