Tim Hecker will release his new album, Love Streams, via 4AD on April 8th.
Love Streams is the follow up to 2013’s Virgins, and will be released on April 8th via 4AD.
Inspired by notions of 15th century choral scores (particularly those by Josquin des Prez), transposed to an artificial intelligence-era language of digital resonance and bright synths, the album was assembled gradually, with layers of studio-tracked keyboards, choir and woodwinds being woven into the mix, then molded and disfigured through complex programming. Like hearing some ancient strain of sacred music corrupted by encryption, Hecker admits to thinking about ideas like “liturgical aesthestics after Yeezus” and the “transcendental voice in the age of auto-tune,” during its creation. -4AD
Love Streams will be pressed on limited edition transparent double LP, available exclusively through 4AD Store and limited to 500 copies worldwide.
