Fennesz' new album, due in March, sees him go back to basics

Fennesz has announced details of his seventh solo studio album, titled Agora. Below, you can hear a medley of the album's four tracks.

The tracks on Agora came about after the producer recorded temporarily lost his normal full studio space and relocated part of his set-up to a small bedroom in his flat, leading to a more stripped-back sound.

"It was all done on headphones, which was rather a frustrating situation at first but later on it felt like back in the day when I produced my first records in the 1990s," Fennesz says. "I used very minimal equipment. I didn't even have the courage to plug in all the gear and instruments which were at my disposal. I just used what was to hand."

Agora is set for release on March 29 via Touch.
