The "knackered house" producer's next LP for Modern Love is due out in October.
The eight-track release is the latest part of a particularly prolific run for Stott, coming one year after his two acclaimed double-packs from 2011: We Stay Together and Passed Me By. All of the material on the album was recorded in the past 12 months. Five of the songs feature original vocals (a notable departure for Stott) from his former piano teacher Alison Skidmore, who he hadn't seen since he was a teenager until the time of the recording (apparently "it just sort of happened"). A press release describes the result as "sort of somewhere between Theo Parrish and Sade, but more fucked."
Luxury Problems was mastered by Matt Colton at Air Studios. It will be available at the end of October as a gatefold double-LP or a six-panel Digifile CD.
