"If we viewed the urban, semi-urban and the rural as part of one continuum rather than thinking of them as opposing ideas or binaries, we would be able to advance environmental and socio-political discourse in line with each other rather than the kind of separation between these ideas that currently exists," Doyle says of the ideas behind the track

William Doyle has shared a fourth track from his upcoming album, Your Wilderness Revisited.

Titled 'Continuum', the track sees Doyle consider the connections between rural, suburban and urban life.

"I believe in a move towards a kind of decentralisation of urbanism where we create new, ecologically and environmentally sustainable developments that will make people feel like they can thrive and be creative wherever they live, and not constantly be at the mercy of their urban centres, or of London," he says of the track.

"If we viewed the urban, semi-urban and the rural as part of one continuum rather than thinking of them as opposing ideas or binaries, we would be able to advance environmental and socio-political discourse in line with each other rather than the kind of separation between these ideas that currently exists. This idea is something I learned from Susannah Hagan's book, Ecological Urbanism: The Nature Of The City (2014), which I was introduced to in an Architectural Review article she wrote on the topic."

Doyle will self-release Your Wilderness Revisited via The Orchard on October 25, and will play live at London's The Courtyard on October 31. Tickets for that show can be found here.

He previously shared the Brian Eno-featuring 'Design Guide' from the record last month.
