Title : Daniel Avery – Together In Static. Format : Vinyl Record. Label : Phantasy Sound. Cat Num : PHLP14. Barcode : 5400863048914
Release Date : June 24th 2021
With his now sold out seated and socially distanced live show Together In Static set to take place at London’s recently restored Hackney Church on 29 th May across two sittings, matinee and evening, Daniel Avery announces an 11-track album of the same name, comprised of music created exclusively for the performance.
“As with many things this past year, the project took on a power and a life of its own right in front of me,” he explains. “The original idea was to simply play a couple of intimate gigs at Hackney Church during the last lockdown. I started to make music specifically for the shows yet, as plans continued to shift, I fell deeper into the waves. I considered a 12” or an EP but by the time I came up for air, I realised I had a complete record I wanted to share. I feel it’s some of my best work and I’m gassed for you all to hear it.”
Together in Static comes almost a year to the day after Avery’s surprise third studio album Love + Light, released last June in the midst of the coronavirus crisis. Where his previous record was hailed by NME as “a heartfelt eulogy for the hedonism we’re missing this summer,” hope and expectation course through the new album. There is joy in communion, and change is coming.
