Maya Bouldry-Morrison's second full-length lands on Honey Soundsystem in April.
Where Are We Going? is a house and techno album with autobiographical elements. It's due out digitally on March 27th, with vinyl to follow on April 7th. (A three-track vinyl sampler is coming out on March 10th.) It's the first time Honey Soundsystem has released an album from a contemporary artist (it's put out compilations from deceased composer Patrick Cowley), and follows Bouldry-Morrison's singles on labels such as Running Back, Argot and Skylax.
"It was the question every single person asked me after coming out as transgender," Bouldry-Morrison says about the meaning of "Do you feel better?," a lyric that appears on the album. "Overall I do, but no, I don't feel better at every moment, which is why the track slips out with a dour bass drone in addition to a beautiful pad. These days, both emotions are ever-present for me."
