Hudson Mohawke has announced his third studio album: Cry Sugar arrives on August 12 via Warp Records. Today’s announcement comes with the release of the new single ‘Bicstan’, which is accompanied by a kingcon2k11-directed visual, as well as ‘Cry Sugar (Megamix)’. Take a listen below, and scroll down for the LP’s cover artwork (by Wayne horse Willehad Eilers).
For Cry Sugar, Mohawke drew inspiration from apocalyptic film soundtracks by everyone from the late Vangelis to John Williams. The album follows a series of mixtapes the Scottish producer put out in 2020: B.B.H.E., Poom Gems, and Airborne Lard. Back in 2016, he composed the soundtrack for the video game Watch Dogs 2.
