SBTRKT Reveals New Album, Plans North American Tour
This week, SBTRKT premiered the lead single of his forthcoming sophomore album, Wonder Where We Land, out September 23. Called “New Dorp. New York”, the track features vocals by Vampire Weekend’s Ezra Koenig (you can listen to the track below). Other contributors on the album include songstress Jessie Ware, A$AP Ferg, Warpaint, Chairlift, long-time contributor Sampha, and many more. To promote the new record, SBTRKT is heading out on a North American tour this fall. The American leg starts on October 6 at The Masquerade in Atlanta, GA, and then goes to New Orleans, LA; Houston, TX; Mexico City, MX; Dallas, TX; Los Angeles, CA (for two dates at The Belasco Theater); New York, NY; Boston, MA; Toronto, ON, and more. For information on ticketing and on-sale dates, visit SBTRKT’s website.
Helmed by producer Aaron Jerome, SBTRKT has worked with a multitude of artists from Sampha to Jessie Ware and remixed tracks from Radiohead, Basement Jaxx, Mark Ronson, and more. The project doesn’t use Jerome’s real name because he wants to maintain the idea of anonymity and let his music speak for itself. To personify this, he wears modern interpretations of native tribal masks to every show, each designed by visual artist A Hidden Place.
