The Nine Inch Nails member's guitar-heavy record is out in September.
Volume Massimo continues in the melodic direction of Cortini's last album, Avanti, the label says. There's also a heavy emphasis on guitar, with tracks that touch on everything from noise music to "glorious pop epics." Cortini moonlights as a keyboard and guitar player in the Nine Inch Nails live band, and he's worked with Merzbow and Lawrence English in the past. He also put out his final album under his long-running SONOIO alias last year.
Listen to first single "Amore Amaro."
01. Amore Amaro
02. Let Go
03. Amaro Amore
06. La Storia
Mute Records will release Volume Massimo on September 27th, 2019.
