The Brooklyn artist's fourth album will arrive through Ninja Tune.
Drew Lustman's fourth LP saw him collaborate with artist Chris Shen to explore the term "In The Wild." A press release says the term was "a catalyst for the spatial and technological reproduction of sound and video." (You can watch a video of one of the album's tracks being played "in the wild"—it appears to be a New York subway train—below.) There's also a poem, written by Shanghai Den, that seems to have provided inspiration for many of the track titles on In The Wild. It reads:
"Upon a mountaintop in Port Lligat I found my true love.
We wrapped each other Uptight,
never will I forget so much regret.
Do Me is truth is progress is death is pain is boredom is sex is dance is silence is void.
Nine is eternal stream is people is family is anger is fight is father is not all.
Heart & Soul is female is more anger is ignorance is blisters on sun soaked lips.
Greater Antilles is two parts masculine one part crystalline structures.
Ahead the Ship Sleeps in Danger is Grief resolved through Rolling in New Haven.
Dos Gardenias para ti.
Post-stroke vernacular, insult to salt intake fake injury to resume sideline spectatorship.
Strained precision, illegal decision and fat masterbatorial visions.
Vapid vaper—what never signed up, tell a lie, till the day I die.
The record is Lustman's fourth full-length, following 2009's Love Is A Liability, 2011's You Stand Uncertain and last year's Hardcourage. In 2013 the producer also launched his own label, Blueberry Records.
