'Moth Book' features on a new 7" single from the pair

Will Burns and Hannah Peel have announced details of a new double-A side 7" single, titled Pale Tussock.

The release takes in two new tracks from the duo. You can hear one of those, 'Moth Book' above. 'Moth Book' came about from a commission to create a new collaborative work for the BBC. From there, the duo also produced flip-side track 'Wendover, Bucks'.

Sound recordist Chris Watson is set to join Burns and Peel on an upcoming series of shows supporting their collaborative record, Chalk Hill Blue, which came out earlier this year. "After bumping into each other at the Cornwall Port Eliot Festival and our admiration for all his work, especially on the new Chernobyl HBO TV series, we wanted to see if there was a way to work together," Peel says of Watson. "We're so thrilled to have Chris involved in one of our last ever performances of Chalk Hill Blue!"

Peel says that the London performance at Milton Court Concert Hall on October 26 will be "channeling the living landscape present on the album," adding that she and Will Burns will be "re-creating the album live with a scored woodwind quartet and very special guest Chris Watson to accompany the sounds, synthesis and poetry". Another show is scheduled at the Civic Barnsley on November 1.

Rivertones will release Pale Tussock on October 18. Read our review of Chalk Hill Blue here.
