Terence Fixmer has shared details of a new album, Shifting Signals.

The 12-track record is his first solo full-length effort for Mute and is inspired by space, most notably a formative childhood viewing of Ridley Scott's 1979 film Alien. "I was totally traumatised but at the same time fascinated by it," Fixmer said of the film in a statement. "I kept thinking about the images from the film while I was making this album." You can listen to lead track 'Corne de Brume' above.

Speaking further about the new record, Fixmer added: "On each album I aim for something different but I retain the core sound, which is always there and often dark and melancholic. Sometimes the balance tips slightly and on this album, I'm striving to be freer and open myself up more to melody."

Mute will release Shifting Signals on December 2, 2022.
