King Midas Sound share single from forthcoming album

Now-duo release Solitude on Valentine's Day on Cosmo Rhythmatic

King Midas Sound have announced their return in the form of the original line up of Roger Robinson and Kevin Martin, minus Kiki Hitomi. Solitude is a meditation on loss; a spoken word tale written by Robinson about the sudden departure of a partner from a relationship, and features sound and production by Martin. Artwork for the album is by Japanese photographer Daisuke Yokota. It's out on 14 February via Cosmo Rhythmatic and marks the group's first release since the Fennesz collaboration Edition 1 was released on Ninja Tune in 2015.

Listen to the lead track “You Disappear”.
