Matt Berry‘s long awaited Music For Insomniacs Part IV project will be released in May, with a preview except available for Record Store Day.
Featuring choral vocals, soothing synths, conga drums and other sounds you can drift away too, the project was completed prior to the Kill The Wolf sessions, but was deemed too ‘out there’ to release as the direct follow up to Witchazel.
Recorded during Matt’s own bouts of insomnia, every note was recorded in solitary isolation during the nights when sleep wasn’t an option.
Now a two-track sampler will be released as a limited edition 7″ via Acid Jazz as part of this year’s RSD celebrations on April 19th, which see vinyl fans across the land queue for hours and hours to try and get collector’s edition records before e-bay scammers buy them all up to sell them on for inflated prices. Let’s just say it’s a nice concept, but if you really want one of these, you’re going to have to beat the odds!
Previews of the tracks can be heard now via Juno Records, which does suggest there may be further chances to bag one of the 500 copies if they don’t sell out on the day. Matt’s previous RSD release, the 2010’s The Badgers Wake, was later sold on tour, so if we hear of any more places to pick up a copy we’ll keep you posted.
The full collection will be released in May. We’ll bring you pre-order links as soon as we have them, so stay peeled.
