I’m happy to announce my seventh album The Harmony Codex will be released exactly one month from today on 29th September by Virgin Music. This one is a real trip, a beautiful and experimental 65 minute labyrinth of a record, with almost every one of its 10 tracks taking a different musical approach. Today you can listen to Economies of Scale, a soulful song built around electronic rhythms and layered vocal harmonies. Then next week something completely different, the mostly instrumental 11 minute hybrid of progressive rock, spiritual jazz and electronica that is Impossible Tightrope. More songs from the album will follow in the weeks leading up to release, including my latest collaboration with Ninet Tayeb. But really I hope you will all get to hear the album as intended – a musical journey, or a piece of “cinema for the ears”.
You can check out Charlie de Placido’s stunning continuous-shot video for Economies of Scale below:
The Harmony Codex is available to pre-order across a variety of physical formats, including a 3-disc deluxe version packaged in ten-by-ten 100-page hardback book. This strictly limited edition features Hajo Mueller’s incredible artwork alongside Carl Glover’s design work, and additionally includes a totally reimagined 77 minute alternate version of the album with contributions by artists such as Manic Street Preachers, Roland Orzabal (Tears For Fears), Mikael Åkerfeldt (Opeth), Interpol and others, as well as a Blu-ray containing 6 different ways to listen to the album; high res stereo, Dolby Atmos and 5.1 mixes, all in both vocal and instrumental form.
I couldn’t be prouder of this album and I think you are going to enjoy it too!
