XL Recordings will release Spoken By The Other, the debut EP by Powell Tillmans—the collaborative project from Wolfgang Tillmans and Powell—on November 16.

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.
