After spending four years crafting his debut album, we can rejoice, for British producer Leon Vynehall is ready to unveil the fruit of his work. Entitled Nothing Is Still and slated for a June 15th release through Ninja Tune, it follows his two incredibly well received extended EP’s, 2014’s Music For The Uninvited and 2016’s Rojus. The record, which also comes accompanied by a Novella and short films, is dedicated to Vynehall’s grandparents, who emigrated from Southampton, UK to New York City in the 60’s. “I knew they had lived in the U.S. and heard many anecdotes”, Vynehall explains. “But it was only after Pops died and my Nan presented these polaroids of their time there; of her waitressing at the New York Mayor’s Ball in ’66, or Pops with horses on a ranch in Arizona, that she delved deeper into their story, and I started to become overtly inquisitive about it”.
The news comes paired with the first wondrous single, ‘Envelopes (Chapter VI)’. Take a listen below.
