Actress Releases New Album, ’88’

The London producer's latest album is being sent out as a free download to those who can guess the answer to a clue, while another album is also due later this year

Actress has self-released a new album.

Titled 88, the album is comprised of 22 tracks, collected together in one 49-minute recording. The London-based producer shared the tracklist for the album via Twitter yesterday (July 15), where he also first announced the album the previous day. It’s his first LP since 2017’s Ninja Tune-released AZD.

In order to gain access to a free download of 88 via a newly set up Bandcamp page, you need to enter a password based on the clue ‘fate with love’ at this webpage – a quick glance around Twitter should help if you’re struggling with the clue.

Alongside the music, the download also comes with a PDF featuring details of another new album, titled Karma & Desire. The PDF says that it will be released in October of this year, and feature 17 tracks. There’s also a tracklist for that album included which hints at the record containing a number of featured artists. It’s not known who those artists are yet however, as they’re obscured by ∆ symbols. Finally, the PDF includes another password with no further detail of its use.

88 is out now, while Karma & Desire will follow in October 2020.
