Anna Meredith announces new album and unveils video for lead single ‘Paramour’

We’re avid fans of electronic contemporary composer Anna Meredith, and ever since her debut EP, 2012’s Black Prince Fury, her music has stuck with us. Her incredible debut album, Varmints, came out in 2016 and now she has announced details of a long-awaited follow-up. Entitled FIBS, the album arrives on October 25th through Moshi Moshi. Speaking about the title of the record, Meredith described it as “lies — but nice friendly lies, little stories and constructions and daydreams and narratives that you make for yourself or you tell yourself.”

The news comes paired with the first single, the brilliant and boisterous ‘Paramour’, a song that as the press release describes, “sweeps, jerks and wrong turns pinning your ears to the speakers whilst heading for warp speed at a blistering 176 BPM before rounding the journey out with an (utterly unexpected) tuba-led half-time rock-out”. What’s more, Meredith has also unveiled an astonishing single-take video for it, featuring 1200 pieces of LEGO track. Ewan Jones Morris directs.
