The lauded UK producer's latest, touted as a sequel to his 2008 debut, is due out on Werkdiscs in January.
An announcement posted to the Werk Discs website frames Ghettoville as the sequel to Hazyville, the UK producer's 2008 debut, despite Actress having released two albums, Splazsh and R.I.P, in the meantime. "Ghettoville is the bleached out and black tinted conclusion of the Actress image," the announcement reads, before reeling of a series of tantalizingly abstract statements. ("The scripts now carry tears, the world has returned to a flattened state, and out through that window, the birds look back into the cage they once inhabited" is one of the choice ones.) A small message at the bottom of an email sent to press offers something more concrete: the album shares "a similar rugged style" with its forebear.
The album will be released as a box set, which includes a 32-page artbook, three LPs, a CD and Hazyville, which appears for the first time here on vinyl. You'll also be able to grab it as a scaled-down vinyl set, a CD and a digital download.
