New Album Buried On Orkney

Underground recording released in 2024 unless found earlier      23/06/21

Erland Cooper has released a new album with an unconventional strategy - he's buried it on the Orkney Islands, an archipelago in Scotland where he grew up. A magnetic tape containing his new material has been buried with the hope it'll be 'recomposed' by the time of its release in 2024. He'll be releasing a map with clues to its whereabouts for those intent on unearthing it before then.

On the unusual release Erland says: "Music can so often feel undervalued and for some, being unable to perform live has at times felt like being buried". "When an idea forms there is often an urge to share it as quickly as it develops but, like spotting a bird, I want to let this fly and land in its own place and time. The work is one part remembrance and one part celebration of a landmark time".
