Grumbling Fur's Alexander Tucker announces his first solo album since 2012

Alexander Tucker, one half of Grumbling Fur, has confirmed details of his first solo release since 2012.

The album, titled Don't Look Away, is set for release on Thrill Jockey this summer and comes preceded by lead track 'Objects' which you can listen to above.

Tucker views Don't Look Away as the final part of a trilogy which began in 2011 with his album Dorwytch and was followed up by his last release, 2012's Third Mouth.

"The composition across these three albums feels like a move away from my earlier records towards something clearer and traditional," Tucker explains, adding that the new record still maintains his "love of manipulating source material into new shapes and forms".

The album takes in guest turns from Nik Void on vocals and Tucker's Grumbling Fur collaborator Daniel O'Sullivan who contributes viola. It was recorded across an extended period in London and Zürich.

Don't Look Away is set for release on August 24 and can be pre-ordered here.
