Mute and Thames & Hudson have announced details of Mute: A Visual Document, a 320-page hardback book, available from 16 November 2017. Here's the story in their own words...

Mute: A Visual Document is packed with artwork and photography – much of it previously unseen – from the Mute Archives and from Daniel Miller's own archives, including photography and video stills from legendary photographers, conceptual artworks, rare ephemera and equipment.

The book features comprehensive discographies, a family tree of Mute artists, an extensive introduction and commentary by Daniel Miller, who has curated the materials for the book, plus anecdotal and photographic contributions from key figures in the label's story, including Moby, Alison Goldfrapp, Anton Corbijn, Bleddyn Butcher, Brian Griffin, Jon Spencer, Barry Adamson, Ivan Novak (Laibach), Angus Andrew (Liars), Adrian Shaughnessy and Tom Hingston.

Mute was created by Daniel Miller, who grew up in North West London, the son of refugee actors from Vienna, to release his debut single, The Normal 'Warm Leatherette' / 'T.V.O.D' in 1978. The label quickly grew and established its reputation and through the music of its community of artists – ranging from Fad Gadget, Goldfrapp, Moby, Can, Diamanda Galás, Nick Cave and The Bad Seeds to Depeche Mode, Yazoo, Erasure, Laibach, Liars and Ben Frost – it has had an incalculable impact on popular music for four decades.

Terry Burrows is an author and musician. He has more than 80 books and 50 (predominantly) experimental music releases to his name. Translated and published globally, his books have sold more than four million copies. His music has sold slightly less. He lives in Hackney, London.
