Ambient producer reveals first solo album in five years; check out a track from it below

Veteran Norwegian ambient producer Biosphere has announced his first solo album in five years and you can check out the first taste of it, in the form of ’Sweet Dreams Form A Shade’, above.

Entitled Departed Glories, the album is set for release on September 23 on the Smalltown Supersound label and is said to be inspired by the producer’s time spent living near Krakow’s Wolski forest as well as the story of a Polish medieval queen called Bronislawa, who fled to the forest in the 13th century to escape the invasion of the Tartars.

The producer worked with local folk music from Poland and Ukraine in order to put together the album which takes in 17 tracks, taking in samples from various recordings.
