The three-tracker marks the Swedish artist's debut for AD 93

Olof Dreijer, formerly one-half of The Knife, has a new EP on the way, titled Coral.

Featuring three new tracks by the Swedish artist, the release marks his debut for the UK label AD 93. You can listen to the record's title track just below. Speaking about it, Dreijer said: "I wanted to make something that feels hopeful, a melody that you feel in the gut, something physical, and with funny and cute elements in the rhythm, things I wanted more of in dance music."

The announcement of Coral follows on from Dreijer's return to releasing music last year, which he marked with the three-track Rosa Rugosa EP for Hessle Audio, and a collaborative record with Mt. Sims based around the steel drum, titled Souvenir.

Dreijer is set to release more new music later this year, and has also been confirmed for appearances at this year's Sónar Barcelona and Dekmantel festival in Amsterdam.

AD 93 will release Coral on March 6, 2024.
