The album's release will be backed by a socially distanced live show in London next month

Daniel Avery is releasing a new album, Together In Static.

Out in June, the 11-track album has been devised especially for a live show that Avery will debut at London's recently restored Hackney Church on May 29. He'll present two live performances of the album, matinee and evening, in a socially distanced setting. A stream from the church will follow on June 23 to give fans worldwide a chance to experience the performance.

"As with many things this past year, the project took on a power and a life of its own right in front of me," Avery says. "The original idea was to simply play a couple of intimate gigs at Hackney Church during the last lockdown. I started to make music specifically for the shows yet, as plans continued to shift, I fell deeper into the waves. I considered a 12" or an EP but by the time I came up for air, I realised I had a complete record I wanted to share."

Tickets for the stream, which will air at four separate times to suit different timezones, are available via DICE. You can listen to lead track 'Endless Hours' above.

Together In Static comes a year on from the release of Avery's last album, Love + Light.

Phantasy will release Together In Static on June 24, 2021.
