Tim Hecker’s forthcoming album, Love Streams, is released on April 8th 2016. His debut record for 4AD, Hecker today releases the first taste from the album, a track entitled ‘Castrati Stack’.

Inspired by notions of 15th century choral scores transposed to an artificial intelligence-era language of digital resonance and bright synths, Love Streams was assembled gradually, with layers of studio-tracked keyboards, choir and woodwinds being woven into the mix, then molded and disfigured through complex programming.

Accompanying the release of the track comes a video from Brett Stabler, which can be viewed below.
