Erased Tapes Reveal Rival Consoles Mini-Album; Stream Cut Here
'Night Melody' is due out August 5.
West first released on Erased Tapes back in 2007 (the year the label was founded), and has since put out a number of EPs, as well as three full-lengths via the imprint. The forthcoming Night Melody picks up where he left off with 2015’s Howl—a deep, textured work of electronic music.
West explains the title of the release: “I found myself in a silent home, with the days getting dark very early. I’ve never before in my life been affected by the lack of light so much. I just remember it always being night time. I would either make music into the night, go out drinking with friends, or go to parties and dance into the early hours, every day, week after week, month after month, until eventually the days became brighter again.”
Ahead of the release of Night Melody, Erased Tapes has shared one of its cuts (“Lone”), which can be streamed below. The record will be released on August 5.
