Madlib and Fourtet share new song and announce album

Words: Dylan Murphy

The pair released ‘Road Of The Lonely Ones‘ today and confirmed they have an album dropping early 2021.

Whilst streaming a Twitch last month, Four Tet confirmed he had an album in the works with Madlib. Last night, he confirmed that Sound Ancestors is due in January 2021 and will arrive via Madlib Invasion.

They premiered the first song, ‘Road Of The Lonely Ones’ from the project today on Mary Anne Hobbs’ BBC Radio One show. Speaking on Instagram Four Tet said:

He is always making loads of music in all sorts of styles and I was listening to some of his new beats and studio sessions when I had the idea that it would be great to hear some of these ideas made into a Madlib solo album. Not made into beats for vocalists to use but instead arranged into tracks that could all flow together in an album designed to be listened to start to finish. I put this concept to him when we were hanging out eating some nice food one day and we decided to work on this together with him sending me tracks, loops, ideas and experiments that I would arrange, edit, manipulate and combine. I was sent hundreds of pieces of music over a couple of years stretch and during that time I put together this album with all the parts that fitted with my vision.

The news follows the release of Madlib’s second collaborative album with Freddie Gibbs – Bandana, last year. Meanwhile, Four Tet shared two new collaborations with Burial and Thom Yorke this month.
