Four Tet aka Kieran Hebden is set to release his fifth studio album, There Is Love In You, his first full-length in almost five years. It features the epic nine minute journey "Love Cry," a loopy track that evolves and unravels around a simple vocal sample and thumping drumbeat. Now remixes have emerged from the acclaimed talent coming from South East London: Joy Orbison rolls out a floating electronic piece with skippy percussion, while Roska's remix is all at once dark, brooding, fierce and funky.
Four Tet will be touring in support of his much-anticipated new album, out January 26th on 2xLP, CD and digital.
