Four Tet (aka Kieran Hebden) has shared a collection of three new songs called Anna Painting. The project was made in collaboration with painter Anna Liber Lewis over the course of several months. Listen to the new record, which features artwork by Liber Lewis, below.
Of the new collaboration, Kieran Hebden wrote on the record’s Bandcamp page:
Anna and I have known each other almost all our lives. We grew up in London with overlapping social circles and shared early music experiences as teenagers. The collaboration unfolded over several months. We worked in tandem from conversation and correspondence. I made music and Anna responded to it with drawings and paintings, apart from the last track, which I made after having seen her work. It was performed and exhibited at a show called Muscle Memory at the Elephant West gallery in London in early 2019.
Anna Painting follows Four Tet’s latest studio album, 2017’s New Energy. In 2018, he released Live at Funkhaus Berlin, 10th May 2018, followed by Live at Alexandra Palace London, 8th and 9th May 2019 earlier this year. Hebden has already released three new singles in 2019: “Teenage Birdsong,” “Dreamers,” and “Only Human”—an edit of Nelly Furtado’s “Afraid.”
