Ben Frost has shared “Ionia,”” a new track ahead of the release of his fifth studio album, The Centre Cannot Hold, out on Mute on September 29.

The track follows the release of “Threshold Of Faith,”” and will be available on streaming services beginning September 13. “”Ionia”” and a remix from JLIN will be available on vinyl September 22. The remix will be available digitally on September 15.

The Centre Cannot Hold was recorded over 10 days by Steve Albini in Chicago, and follows Threshold Of Faith, an EP released two weeks ago that was produced by Steve Albini of Shellac and Big Black.

We’re told that the LP is an “exercise in limitation and chromatic saturation” and an “attempt at transcribing a spectrum of glowing ultramarine into sound.”
