Matthew Herbert—the man who, in the past, brought us songs made from food samples and a hyper-conceptual Iraq War protest record (as Radio Boy)—will return next year with a new offering entitled The Pig. Yes, it will be an album made entirely from pig noises, and in the hands of a lesser artist, skepticism would be allowed (nay, encouraged), but Herbert has proven himself, again and again, a producer able to massage a pleasing sound out of the strangest of items (including McDonald’s hamburgers).

The Pig will be crafted from sounds made during the life cycle of a pig. “I will be there at its birth, during its life, present at its death, and during the butchery process,” Herbert stated in a recent blog post.

The album is currently slated for a 2010 release via Accidental.
