Floating Points today shares “Nespole”, the opening track from his forthcoming debut Elaenia (out via Pluto in the UK and Luaka Bop in the US on November 6).

An intricate introduction to the album, the ebbs and flows of “Nespole” set the tone for things to come. Sporting lush layers of swelling synths, it’s a brilliant precursor to the track that follows—the previously shared “Silhouettes (I, II & III)“.

After debuting much of Elaenia live at Dimensions, Shepherd has also announced that he will bring his 11-piece orchestra to London’s Islington Assembly Hall on November 17 2015. Pre-sale tickets are available now via Songkick. General sale will commence at 9am on Friday September 25.

Elaenia will be released on LP, CD and digital download. All pre-orders via the store will receive “Silhouettes (I, II & III)” and “Nespole” instantly.

Ahead of the album’s release date, “Nespole” and “Silhouettes (I, II & III)” can be streamed in full below.
