Clark announces new album 'Kiri Variations', shares single: Listen

We can’t wait for the rest… 

Clark has announced a new album, 'Kiri Variations', and shared the first single from the album, ‘Cannibal Homecoming’ 

This will be the Warp Records mainstay’s ninth studio album, following 2017’s ‘Death Peak’, and will be released through his own label, Throttle Records. 

Clark said of ‘Kiri Variations’: “It’s a skeleton of an album, reduced to bare essentials, although it started out rather dense. The thing that takes time is making it succinct. Certain parts are also what you could call anti muso – for example the recorder on ‘Kiri’s Glee’ is totally out of tune – but it sounds so colourful. I can’t resist the primary paint of acoustic instruments; it’s an antidote to frictionless digital music."

Clark, who also announced a new EP on Throttle due in September, originally recorded the album as a score to Channel 4’s BAFTA-winning series Kiri. But when only some of the music was used for the four-part drama, Clark decided to turn it into an album.
