Techno mainstay Chris Liebing has announced a new album. Burn Slow will feature contributions from Gary Numan, Akron/Family’s Miles Cooper Seaton, Polly Scattergood, Cold Cave and Aleen.

You can listen to the lead track, ‘Polished Chrome (The Friend Pt. 1)’, with vocals by Numan, below.

Liebing, who cites influences as diverse as philosopher and mystic Alan Watts, describes the music on the new record as “something [I’ve] wanted to do all my life.” The album is something of a departure from Liebing’s familiar domain of dance-oriented, pummelling kicks, characterised in a press release as a “minimalist electronic epic” which aims to “seek out new harmonic territories, taking aim at the heart rather than the feet.”

Burn Slow is out September 7 on Mute. Liebing is playing numerous festivals throughout the summer, arriving in the UK for a performance at The Vaults, Cardiff on 20 July.
