King Champion Sounds have a new album, ‘Between Two Worlds’, on the way.
The new album by the shifting Holland-based collective centred around Ajay Saggar and Oli Heffernan (University Challenged), GW Sok (The Ex), Mees Siderius, Holly Habstritt Gaal & Elsa van der Linden – is described as “an opportunity to exchange ideas. To be open-minded. To push boundaries and explore new worlds.”
The thirteen-track record features guest appearances from Gerry Love, Mia Doi Todd, Sally Timms, Jon Langford, Janet Beveridge Bean and Marieke McKenna. Check out the video for the title track above.
Hive Mind Records will release Between Two Worlds on 22nd October. Pre-order from Bandcamp.
