Sound the ambient fanfare.
Avant-drone maestro Tim Hecker has shared ‘Castrati Stack’, the first track from his forthcoming 4AD debut, Love Streams, which is inspired by “notions of 15th century choral scores transposed to an artificial intelligence-era language of digital resonance and bright synths.”
A glitchy-yet-beautiful diamond in the rough, ‘Castrati Stack’ is peppered with choral notes and cloaked in distortion, visualised in a ghostly video by Brett Stabler.
Hecker will take the album on tour to North America and Europe in the spring, dates below.

April 14 – NEW YORK, NY, Warsaw
