Four Tet and Madlib Announce Collaborative Album ‘Sound Ancestors’

    Four Tet‘s Kieran Hebden has announced a collaborative album with Madlib titled Sound Ancestors. It’s set for release in January next year through the Madlib Invazion label, while the lead single, ‘Road Of The Lonely Ones’, will be premiered by Anne Hobbs on BBC Radio 6 Music today (December 14).

    “A few months ago I completed work on an album with my friend Madlib that we’d been making for the last few years,” Four Tet’s Kieran HebdenHe wrote on Instagram. “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.”

    Four Tet released his most recent album Sixteen Oceans in March. He recently teamed up with Thom Yorke and Burial for a two-song collaborative single, ‘Her Revolution/ His Rope’. Earlier this year, Madlib collaborated with his sibling, rapper Oh No, for a collaborative album released under the moniker The Professionals.
