You Always Will Be is the followup to 2020’s The Invention of the Human, an album of gorgeous woozy ambient. Across 10 tracks, the new record touches on themes of nostalgia and longing for times passed.
“The piece tells the story of a single life, from birth to death,” says Henner, a reclusive ambient producer who has also put out EPs on Phantom Limb and Inner Islands. “I’ve been thinking about the passage of life a lot recently as I lost all four of my grandparents but celebrated the birth of my daughter all within a short period of time. The brevity and preciousness of being really hit me.”
The vinyl release consists of a 40-minute piece split across two sides, while the digital release features extended versions of the music in that piece, making up 10 individual tracks. Anyone that purchases the full album from the AD 93 Bandcamp will be credited with the 40-minute piece automatically.
Earlier this month, AD 93, a London label run by Nic Tasker, released Doxa by Venus Ex Machina.
