Dan Mangan has dropped a surprise EP, 'Unmake'.

The record is the Vancouver songwriter’s first solo offering since his 2011 album 'Oh Fortune'. It boasts a collaboration with Tegan Quin of Tegan and Sara, a Robyn cover and two reworked tracks from his last album, 2015's ‘Club Meds’.

Discussing cut Race To The Bottom, which you can listen to below, Mangan said:

“Various types of people have a slice of the story, but nobody has the whole story. It’s about us grasping for a better or simpler time, but it never existed. Either we’re bummed that we missed out on it, or we’re anxious that we’ll miss the moment when it does come. I’ve always been fascinated by nostalgia. I think it’s dangerous. Putting a halo on the past takes you out of the now, and it’s just not realistic. It’s fantasy.”  

Mangan will return to the UK in July for appearances at Tramlines and Deer Shed Festival.
