'Ask The Dust' New Album Out June

Lorn - 'Ask The Dust' New Album Out June

Lorn will release Ask The Dust, his sophomore album and debut for Ninja Tune, on 18 June (EU) / 26 June (NA) - grab a free download of "Ghosst" now here.

Listening back to his first album, Lorn says it now seems “cold and strict.” Ask The Dust, on the other hand, is “haunted, oily, smeared,” and with this description he captures something of the intensely felt, visceral aliveness of the music.

If Lorn began his musical career as a poet of alienation, then Ask The Dust (named after the 1939 proto-Beat classic novel of the same name by John Fante) sees his music develop a more human energy. In particular, the use of his own singing voice (a process which began on the last track of Nothing Else, “What’s The Use”), which has added a new dimension to his often crunching and brutal but never less than beautiful electronic music.

Ask The Dust is released 18 June (EU) / 26 June (NA) on Limited Edition Reel-to-Reel Tape (inc. CD, prints & drawings), 2LP, CD and download - pre-order now at the Ninjashop.

Lorn will support Amon Tobin at Brixton Academy on 12 May - tickets and info here.
