The Warp Records artist will release his next album in May.
Silver Wilkinson will be Stephen James Wilkinson's seventh full-length, arriving two years after his most recent album, Mind Bokeh. The sounds of the album were in part inspired by the outdoors—first single "À tout à l'heure" was recorded in Wilkinson's back garden and samples a plastic watering can and garden shears, while "Dye The Water Green" features the sound of rain falling on the tin roof of the producer's shed.
"If there was a preconceived idea before this album started coming together, it was a fairly vague one: to focus more on an organic and live sound and to record more guitar and other live instrumentation," Wilkinson explains. "However, I'm no purist, so I don't restrain myself from taking stylistic diversions, to do so might be to dispose of the unplanned. As a result this album feels to me as eclectic as my previous two albums."
