The tape, loaded with all new Actress material, is available with every purchase of a new run of limited edition T-shirts

Actress has shared details of a new mixtape, Unseen__Werk No1.

The release, which is comprised of all new material by the UK artist, is available exclusively with each purchase of a new line of limited edition T-shirts. The merch is a collaboration with LA-based fashion outlet Brain Dead with proceeds from sales of the T-shirts going to UK charity Black Minds Matter.

"I've always been concerned with the development but also the protection of young Black minds," Actress says of his decision to donate the proceeds from the clothing to Black Minds Matter. "Before releasing records I was mentoring music production classes for disenfranchised South London Kids, and since developing my own platform as an artist, I've been searching for ways to further promote Black creativity.

"Brain Dead presented an opportunity for me to release music and collaborate on an Unseen_Werk T-shirt in order to raise awareness for a charity of my choosing. Black Minds Matter, an organisation dedicated to protecting Black Minds in the harshest of environments for many Black People in the current climate, has been doing vital work in this field, and felt like an essential choice."

Unseen__Werk No1 is Actress' third release of 2020, following on from free album 88 and the Ninja Tune-released LP Karma & Desire.

The T-shirt and accompanying mixtape are available to purchase now.
