"This one is a bit more consolidated as a project": Hudson Mohawke confirms new solo album for 2013

In a new interview, the Glasgow arm of G.O.O.D. Music reveals that he has a new solo album due this way.

Speaking to NME, Hudson Mohawke – who made headlines last year when he signed to Kanye West’s G.O.O.D. Music production team, partnered with Canadian producer Lunice for one of the festival circuit’s most in-demand acts in TNGHT, and took home a FACT BRIT – explained that the follow-up to his first solo album, 2009’s Butter, will arrive “this year, definitely.”

“I’ve been working on it for a while”, Hud continues, “and taking my time with it. Every month or two I’ll go back and do another couple weeks work on it. A lot of it’s been me saying “Yeah, I’m definitely using that” and then I scrap it a month later because I don’t like it.”

Butter was a collage of different stuff I’d done over the few years before that. This one is a bit more consolidated as a project. I want it to be like an album album, you know? [It’s still sample based] but there are also live instruments. Strings, horns, trumpets…I wanted to make it more musical in general and less computer focussed. I want to step out of the electronic bedroom producer role and move into a musician producer role.”
