Soft Landing, the new album from the ever so wonderful and inventive Sandro Perri is just around the corner. Perri had already enticed us with an excerpt of the warm and sublime 16-minute opening track ‘Time (You Got Me)‘. Ahead of the album’s release on September 6th through Constellation, he has shared the divine second single ‘Wrong About The Rain’.

Sandro Perri has released several wonderful and stylistically diverse albums for over 15 years, under his own name and other monikers, and also in collaboration with many different musicians. So news of a new Sandro Perri album is always marvelous news. Following last year’s In Another Life, Perri is ready to release Soft Landing, “this time with guitar at the calmly rambling heart” of the album tracks.
Soft Landing arrives on September 6th through Constellation but we can already hear an excerpt of the warm and sublime 16-minute opening track “Time (You Got Me)”.

We’ve been eagerly waiting for a new album from the wonderfully inventive Sandro Perri for a while. His much anticipated new album In Another Life came out last Friday and Perri had already enticed us with an excerpt of the magical, gentle and magnificent 24-minute title-track. Coinciding with the album’s release, Perri shared a second single, ‘Everybody’s Parts pt III’ featuring Dan Bejar (Destroyer). Take a listen below. You’ll want In Another Life in your life.
In Another Life is out now through Constellation
The always wonderful and inventive Sandro Perri seems to always keep himself busy with a dizzying array of stellar projects. His most recent, under the moniker Off World, is a 3-volume collection featuring collaborative gems with other producers and musicians, with volume 1 and 2 now released and both making it to our Album Picks of 2016 and 2017.
The widely acclaimed Impossible Spaces was the last release under his own name, but rejoice, for Perri is returning to our lives with a new solo album called In Another Life. Described by himself as “an experiment in ‘infinite’ songwriting”, In Another Life opens with the magical and magnificent 24-minute title-track and also features a three-part song cycle with Dan Bejar (Destroyer) and André Ethier (Deadly Snakes) providing lead vocals.
The album arrives on September 14th through Constellation and we can already get under its spell with an excerpt of ‘In Another Life’. Sublimely beautiful and gentle, the song is a “pop mantra for sequenced synth, piano, guitar and voice, progressing sideways rather than forward”, explains the press release. “A relaxed three-chord vamp runs the length of the album’s Side One, peppered with Sandro’s languid, lilting vocal and adorned with continually developing musical details – massaging the listener with the joys of repetition while defying stasis and monotony.” Wrap your ears and heart around ‘In Another Life’ now.
Last year, the unstoppable and creative musical force that is Sandro Perri, unleashed a new project, Off World, assembling a collection of his collaborative work with other producers and musicians. Set for release in three volumes, and a year on from the release of 1, which was one of our Album Picks of the Year, 2 is out this Friday through eternal favourite Constellation Records.
Off World, and as the label describes, “is alien electronics played humanly, resulting in genuinely exploratory and peculiarly sui generis electronic music that sounds like it could have issued from any time in the past 40-50 years.”
The spellbinding ‘Scrubdown’ serves as a perfect taste for Off World’s upcoming 2, magically lifting us to an intriguing and charming world. Take a listen now.
