Ambient producer Earthen Sea's next album is due this summer

Kranky has announced that it will release a new album from ambient producer Earthen Sea in June.

Titled Grass And Trees, the album is preceded by lead track 'Existing Closer Or Deeper In Space', which opens the album and can be heard above.

Grass And Trees is Earthen Sea's - real name Jacob Long - second album for Kranky. He describes the process of working on the album as one of "simplifying things as much as possible," taking in field recordings and "sounds that could be played by hand but weren't."

He continues: "In response to living in a fairly hectic city, and at a very hectic time for the world at large, creating something more drawn back and restrained felt appropriate."

Kranky will release Grass And Trees on June 7. Pre-order it here.
