- Departing Like Rivers is due in September.
A new full-length from Shackleton is in the pipeline.
Departing Like Rivers spans seven tracks and arrives on September 21st via the artist's own label, Woe To The Septic Heart. Incorporating atmospheric electronics, odd time signatures and vocal samples inspired by British folk music, the LP is meant to represent Shackleton's core sound. In a statement, the producer described the work as "foggy and scuzzy in feel," adding that it's intended to be "a psychedelic album as much as anything."
Unlike his recent releases, Departing Like Rivers isn't concept-based and doesn't feature collaborators. Shackleton says that it lacks "any of the genre tropes that may have been present the last time I made a solo album." It's his third album as a solo artist and his first in nine years. It follows Like The Stars Forever And Ever, a 2020 LP released under his Tunes Of Negation project.
