Babybird has unveiled the second single from the upcoming album ‘Photosynthesis’. On the solemn, beautiful ‘Cave In’, shadowy bass gathers around dusty loops as Jones invades trip hop territory and makes it his own.
‘Photosynthesis’ is out on 19 July 2019. A UK tour will follow in November, with tickets on sale here.
Arriving just months after the critically acclaimed ‘Happy Stupid Nothing’ compilation, ‘Photosynthesis’ is something very different. Although many people weren’t aware he was even still making music, throughout this decade Stephen Jones has been quietly building himself a reputation as one of the music world’s most prolific artists. Here are ten tracks, all self-recorded in recent years.
‘Photosynthesis’ will be available as a limited edition gatefold vinyl LP, and will be released on the RW/FF Recordings label.
Order it now at babybird.info or from selected independent record stores. Buy the LP from the online store and you will receive the single ‘No Cameras’ and the digital-only bonus track ‘Photosynthesis’ as instant downloads.
In addition to the release of the LP, there will also be a number of other Babybird releases over the coming months. ‘BB/AA/LOFI Future Taste’ is a sampler containing several brand new songs, which can be downloaded FREE here.
