Forest Swords is back with his first new tracks in five years. Watch the video for 'Butterfly Effect' below.
UK artist Matthew Barnes's first solo release since the 2017 LP 'Compassion' is the 'Butterfly Effect' single, which features a vocal sample by Neneh Cherry, out now via Ninja Tune. The double single also features 'Tar', plus a reprise of the title track.
"The track swirled around as a pure instrumental for a while, a beat I made in the cold factory space in Liverpool I was recording in, some kind of attempt to cope with the psychedelic amounts of pain I was in from a leg injury", Barnes said. "Neneh’s unreleased archive vocal turned out to be a perfect fit, like they were meant to be together somehow. As a fan that has always idolised her, it's a true honour and life highlight to have her blessing to use the vocal on this track".
This autumn, Forest Swords will head out on tour through the UK and Europe. Find more information and dates here.
