It's the second release on the producer's recently launched label, Paplu

Vessel has a new EP on the way, titled Passion.

The three-track EP is inspired by Brazilian writer Claire Lispector and looks at the complexities of the mind and mental health, which includes Vessel's own battles. Proceeds from the sale of the EP will be donated to mental health charity Mind, with Vessel saying: "Given the nature of the piece and what it draws from, it felt right to offer something back to people that are there for others when things turn bad. Mind have helped me a lot in the past. We live in difficult times, and services like theirs need support."

Speaking about the EP itself, Vessel, real name Sebastian Gainsborough, says: "The music came from, or was a response to my long-term, on-again off-again relationship with depression and anxiety. It's not intended to be a conclusive or literal statement about mental health, but a personal expression of the messiness of the mind." You can listen to lead track 'Movement III (if the telephone rings i'll be saved)' above.

Paplu will release Passion on November 18, 2020.
