Listen to Nicolas Jaar’s Third Album of 2020
'Telas' can be listened to in its "liquid state" via an interactive website.
Nicolas Jaar has launched an interactive website for his third album of 2020, Telas.
Announced via Jaar’s Instagram, Telas, meaning “fabrics,” is Jaar’s sixth album, dating back to 2011’s Space Is Only Noise. It follows Jaar’s album as Against All Logic, titled 2017-2019, and Cenizas, meaning “ashes,” his first album under his own name since 2016’s Sirens. “Cenizas was the ashes of a destruction. Telas is the fabrics of a construction,” Jaar says.
The album features contributions from Milena Punzi on cello, Susanna Gonzo (voice), Anna Ippolito & Marzio Zorio (instrument makers), and Heba Kadry on mastering.
The first taste of the album, its “liquid state,” can be listened to via an interactive website created by Abeera Kamran in collaboration with Jaar and Somnath Bhatt.
After the website launch, Telas will be released digitally on July 17 via Jaar’s own Other People, and the vinyl will come in October on Mana Records.
