Actress Details New Album, ‘LXXXVIII’

Darren Cunningham's ninth record takes inspiration from game theory

Actress has shared details of a new album, LXXXVIII.

Spanning 13 tracks, the record, which is Darren Cunningham’s ninth full-length release as Actress, takes inspiration from game theory, a form of mathematics frequently associated with chess and economics. Expanding on the chess theme, the artist also recently challenged people to a bullet round of the game online, which then led his opponent to a site hosting the trailer for LXXXVIII. You can listen to album track ‘Game Over (e 1)’, which appears on the record alongside previously released single ‘Push Power (a 1)’, just below.

Ninja Tune will release LXXXVIII on November 3, 2023.
