It's the artist's first solo album in nine years

Shackleton is lining up a new solo album for release in September.

Titled Departing Like Rivers, the record is his first solo full-length release in nine years and will come out via own Woe To The Septic Heart imprint. The record, Shackleton says, marks a departure from a number of his other collaboration-focused full-length projects from recent years in that "it is not a 'concept album'."

Adding that he wanted to focus on his "core sound" with the new project, he describes the album as "foggy and scuzzy in feel," while also revealing that he intended for it to be "a psychedelic album as much as anything." You can check out opening track 'Something Tells Me / Pour Out Like Water' just above.

Since his last solo album in 2012, Shackleton has released collaborative full-length projects with the likes of Ernesto Tomasini, Vengeance Tenfold, Anika and Wacław Zimpel. He's also released two albums as part of the Tunes Of Negation project.

Woe To The Septic Heart will release Departing Like Rivers on September 21, 2021.
