Tim Hecker Shares First Single From New Album 'Konoyo'

Tuesday, 31 July 2018 Written by Laura Johnson

Tim Hecker will return with a new album this autumn.

The Canadian electronic musician will put out 'Konoyo' on September 28 through Kranky. It is the first new material to emerge from him since Veil Scans, a contribution to the Adult Swim singles series, while his last full-length was 2016's 'Love Streams'.

The majority of the album was recorded over the course of several trips to Japan, where he collaborated with gagaku ensemble Tokyo Gakuso in a temple in Tokyo. The composer also took inspiration from coversations he had with a friend who has since passed away.

Hecker will support the record with live shows in Tokyo, Krakow, Berlin and London, where he will play the Barbican on October 6. For the performances he will be joined by members of Tokyo Gakuso and accompanied by Kara-Lis Coverdale. 

Head below to listen to This Life, the first single to be shared from 'Konoyo', which clocks in just shy of nine minutes.

Tim Hecker Upcoming Tour Dates are as follows

Sat October 06 2018 - LONDON Barbican

Spiritualized - And Nothing Hurt (Album Review)
Thu 13 Sep 2018
North American and British indie do fundamentally different things. The former emanates from a land of introverts as an alternative to the blood and guts of rock music and an intellectual safehouse, born as much from the druggy gentility of Laurel Canyon as the broken factories of Detroit. The latter, however, is largely a battleground of extroverts who peacock their way through shouty choruses at beer-sodden festivals. It is an extension of rock, as opposed to its alternative.
