In which Karl Hyde channels his inner Mark E Smith.
Following on from the obligatory Eno Collaboration, Hyde reunites with his Underworld compadres for new stuff. I Exhale is the first track taken from the forthcoming LP, their ninth studio album and first since 2010, 'Barbara Barbara, we are facing a shining future' about which the band say "So what’s there in the shining future? The opening punch of a two-note detuned bass riff crunching over relentless percussion; the elegiac swoop of strings as they stretch out across off-world electronics; a demented lupine howl that curls itself into an unshakeable earworm; celestial techno and South American acoustics; voices that warp into harmonic riffs; found lyrics that form fine-tuned monolgues; head music to dance to.."
So there's something to look forward to.
Barbara Barbara, we face a shining future is out on March 18. You can pre-order it here.
