Mark Pritchard has released a full stream of Under The Sun his first solo album in five years. Featuring a total of 16 tracks, the record draws influences from ambient, psych and folk and, with help from vocalists such as Thom Yorke, Linda Perhacs, Bibio and Beans (ex- Antipop Consortium), creates a sort of sonic utopian landscape, complemented completely by the artwork of Jonathan Zawada.
On the stream, Mark says: “I know, I know, it’s a big ask in these current times of everyone being busy! But, if you get a spare 67 mins please press play and let it run. I designed this to work as a whole experience, hoping that if people are in the right mood, free from distractions, the music will take you somewhere else. Yes, this could be said of any album, why this one in particular Mark? Well, it’s just a reminder really and something that I need to remind myself of sometimes. I hope you enjoy it.”
Official release is due for May 13th. In the meantime, you can stream it over on Bleep.
