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.
