Hear a Track from Kid Koala’s Forthcoming Ambient Album
'Music To Draw To: Satellite' will drop January 20 on Arts & Crafts and features Emilíana Torrini.
The ambient album features the vocal stylings of Icelandic singer Emilíana Torrini and is the inaugural volume in the ‘Music To Draw To’ series. Satellite is also the first non-sample-based body of work from San, who produced and performed all the instrumentation on an array of synthesizers, keys, guitars, basses, and strings. The eighteen atmospheric cuts on Satellite tell a “heartrending tale of discovery and loss through the lens of lovers separated by a one-way space mission to Mars”—a tale made all the more affecting with Torrini’s stunning vocal work.
Music To Draw To: Satellite will be released on 2xLP vinyl, CD, MP3, and Deluxe CD with sketchbook—all of which can be pre-ordered here. Ahead of the January 20 release date, you can stream album cut “Collapser (featuring Emilíana Torrini)” in full via the player below, alongside Kid Koala’s upcoming tour dates.
