Forest Swords Returns With New Songs ‘Butterfly Effect’ and ‘Tar’

    British electronic producer Forest Swords has returned with his first new music in five years. ‘Butterfly Effect’, which is built on a previously unheard vocal sample by Neneh Cherry, arrives alongside a video directed by Sam Wiehl. Its B-side, ‘Tar’, is also out today. Take a listen below.

    “The track swirled around as a pure instrumental for a while, a beat I made in the cold factory space in Liverpool I was recording in, some kind of attempt to cope with the psychedelic amounts of pain I was in from a leg injury,” Forest Swords explained of ‘Butterfly Effect’. “Neneh’s unreleased archive vocal turned out to be a perfect fit, like they were meant to be together somehow. As a fan that has always idolized her, it’s a true honor and life highlight to have her blessing to use the vocal on this track.”

    Forest Swords’ most recent album was 2017’s Compassion.
