The first taste of SBTRKT’s new album is finally here

Three long years after he wowed us with his self-titled debut, London enigma SBTRKT has finally given us the first taste of his second album. Early this morning, Aaron Jerome – the man behind the famous mask – posted a radio rip of his new track New Dorp, New York to Soundcloud.

Premiered on BBC Radio 1 overnight, New Dorp, New York has Vampire Weekend’s Ezra Koenig on vocals and feels like quite a departure from much of the material on SBTRKT. As Jerome introduces: “It’s a funny tune, but it’s quite exciting for me”. It’s the first single from the new SBTRKT album Wonder Where We Will Land, which is still without an official release date. That’s the album artwork in the Soundcloud embed below.

While it’s been three years between albums, SBTRKT’s Soundcloud page has been far from dormant. Just last month he teamed up with Hold On collaborator Sampha once more for the new track Temporary View and earlier this year, Jerome unveiled his Transitions EPs, with various other pieces of production making their way online over the years.
