Shackleton will release Departing Like Rivers, his first album in nine years.

Departing Like Rivers is the British artist’s third solo album ever, and it follows his recent releases as Tunes Of Negation alongside Heather Leight, Takumi Motokawa, and Raphael Meinhart, and in collaboration with Wacław Zimpel. Unlike these works, it is “not a concept album,” Shackleton, real name Sam Shackleton, tells XLR8R. “I just wanted to focus on my core sound really but without any of the genre tropes that may have been present the last time I made a solo album.” We’re told that it is “meditative, foggy, and scuzzy,” and made of “multiple psychedelic layers and ghosts of Brit folk songs.”

We’re also told that you can listen to the album in a more meditative way without getting distracted by the details. He hopes it will be the kind of release that people play “at the end of an excessive night, like after a club being back home with some friends.”

It follows Like The Stars Forever And Ever, released last year as Tunes Of Negation, and comes of Shackleton’s own Woe To The Septic Heart!, which he started in 2010.
