Scrolling through my Instagram this morning I stumbled upon a post from Young Turks that said “New @sbtrktofficial IMO up now !”, along with a YouTube link. Of course I had to go check it out, and, sure enough, I was directed to a new SBTRKT song called “IMO”. While in an unfinished state, it’s still great to hear new material from the producer, especially one that sounds different, more electronic and less tribal than his previous output.
Of course, it’s not the first new material we get from the producer, but this is the first one that’s seemingly confirmed to be on his second album, whenever it happens. As the description underneath the video explains:
new music from my album recordings (un mixed/mastered)
in memory of my brother Daniel
visuals co-collaboration lorenzo durantini + a hidden place
The producer has also taken to Twitter to explain that it’s “not a ‘single’/ planned campaign/ album promo hype thing. just music [he wanted] to share”, which seems to explain that the album is still a ways away.
