Session Victim have unveiled their forthcoming 11-track album, Needledrop, out March 6 on Night Time Stories, the London-based sister label to LateNightTales.

Needledrop is the German duo’s fourth studio album, following three outings on Delusions Of Grandeur, and marks a notable move towards the downtempo dynamic of artists like Nightmares on Wax, DJ Shadow, and Portishead, all of whom “have all played a strong influence in Session Victim’s variety of output over the last decade,” we’re told.

Accompanying the album announcement is the video for “Made Me Fly,” a collaboration with singer-songwriter Beth Hirsch, known for her work with French duo Air on their 1998 album, Moon Safari. The music video was created by animator Mike Scott and tells a computer game love story visually inspired by ’80s and ’90s point and click adventure games.
