Matthew Bourne to release new album, Irrealis, in May

What better way to celebrate Piano Day than with the newly announced album from incredibly imaginative pianist and composer Matthew Bourne. Entitled Irrealis, the upcoming album follows his 2017 Isotach album, and recent collaborations with Keeley Forsyth and Nightports.

The fruit of a single session, Irrealis was recorded with no overdubs. A sonic explorer, on his new album Bourne “explore[s] the possibilities of his instrument with a box of nuts, bolts and Blu-Tak, and a sense of playfulness and spontaneity”, as the press release explains.

We’ll have to wait until May 27th for the album to arrive through The Leaf Label but we can already hear the beguiling lead single, ‘Alice’. It comes with a video directed by Ross Downes and you can watch it below.
