Blizzards, his fifth LP, is out on Cambria Instruments in April.
Blizzards was largely inspired by the UK artist's live setup, with most of the LP recorded on a stripped-back setup in one take. The title refers both to the state of UK politics as well as the dense melodic layering and polyrhythms of his music, according to the press release. Fake himself calls it "the most epic album I've made yet."
Following a stint on Ninja Tune, Blizzards sees Fake return to his own Cambria Instruments label. His last album, Providence, came out in 2017, followed by the Sunder EP in 2018.
