It's the third new cut to emerge from the UK producer this year

Floating Points has released a new single, 'Problems'.

The track – which follows on from the release of the singles 'Vocoder' and 'Grammar' earlier this year – has been a staple of the UK producer's DJ sets for the last year, as well as being heard in club sets from the likes of Ben UFO, Call Super and more. You can watch a video for the new track, created by Floating Points' frequent visual collaborators Hamill Industries, above.

In a statement about the video, Hamill Industries said: "'Problems' is meant to agitate every single room that its ecstatic sound waves reach. We wanted to celebrate it with movement and dance and reshape it through sound, by using techniques that allow the sonification of images. We have used lasers that spin and move with the music, making visible their sinuous shapes. It was important that this video shaped the electrical feeling you get when being on a dancefloor, the urge of dancing when sound waves reach your ears."

'Problems' is out now on Ninja Tune.
