“Ready” that includes Teezo Landing is SBTRKT’s first outing of 2023, following his December’s LEILAH collaboration “FORWARD”. Each songs will seem on his upcoming third album.
SBTRKT says of the observe: “I’m all the time listening to and searching for brand new music – and got here throughout a tune of Teezo’s “I’m Simply A Fan” – in Oct 21 – by serendipity he was heading to London the following week so we linked in particular person. In some methods – though private to Teezo too – it completely vocalised every little thing I had been going by.
“It subsequently felt like the obvious tune to then lead into my album with. Musically its an growth on my earlier data – with a purposefully wider and extra layered sound. All devices on this tune and the album performed, recorded, produced and combined by me.”
The brand new single is accompanied by information of SBTRKT’s first studio album in over eight years, The Rat Street, which is able to observe his 2016 shock challenge SAVE YOURSELF, and his 2014 album Marvel The place We Land.
He says of his third album: “This album has been my most sonically formidable document to create – following my very own musical path – which isn’t based mostly on others’ perceptions of what SBTRKT ought to be.
“The Rat Street title is a play on the idea of ‘the rat race’. It’s partly based mostly by myself difficult experiences inside the music trade and life usually – although I realised the concept shouldn’t be remoted from a a lot wider feeling of exhaustion – undoubtedly true right here within the UK with little sense of respite from ever growing prices/ reducing alternative / and a daring divide and conquer mentality. There’s the juxtaposition within the document between dedication and hopelessness.”
