Karl Hyde’s New Album

The Underworld front man has just announced details of his solo album “Edgeland” which will be released in the Spring, and I couldn’t be more excited.

From the Underworld site:

“April 2013 will see the release of Karl Hyde’s debut solo LP, Edgeland. It features nine tracks that were recorded over a year in London with multi-instrumentalist and producer Leo Abrahams (whom Karl met whilst collaborating with Brian Eno on Pure Scenius). Edgeland is a graceful and meditative collection that explores the limitless possibilities of what late film director Anthony Minghella christened ‘esoteric Underworld’ – something that’s existed on record since Dubnobasswithmyheadman.”

And all that means that this should be great. I really love the soundtrack that Underworld did with Gabriel Yared for “Breaking & Entering”, Anthony Minghella’s fantastic 2006 movie drama and judging by the taster below, this is along those lines (sounds like Talk Talk a bit too!) so looks like I’ll be happy.

The pre-order is in!
