Underworld have announced a new single, a new album and their biggest ever live headline shows including London’s Wembley Arena.
The album is the conclusion of their fifty-two week DRIFT series. They have also revealed Soniamode (Aditya Game Version) – an extended and reframed version of a track originally released as part of DRIFT Episode 2: ATOM. This new version features additional lyrics from writer Aditya Chakrabortty. Listen here:
Previous DRIFT tracks have featured collaborations with producer Ø [Phase] and Australian experimental trio The Necks.
Following a summer of headline slots at festivals including Sonar, Latitude, Roskilde, Down The Rabbit Hole, Rock Werchter, Lollapalooza and Vivid (where they play a four-night run at the Sydney Opera House), Underworld play at:
Fri Nov 22nd Antwerp, Lotto Arena
Sat Nov 23rd Amsterdam, Ziggo Dome
Sat Dec 7th London, Wembley Arena
These shows will continue innovations tried and tested at their sold out 2017 Alexandra Palace show where Underworld provide live music from doors to close. Tickets are on sale from 10am BST / 11am CET on Friday 24th May.
“Released on October 25th 2019, the new album DRIFT SONGS marks the conclusion of their hugely ambitious 52-week DRIFT Series. During that period, music, film and text pieces are created and published every Thursday as part of the band’s on-going, very public recording process; a unique and visionary space Smith and Hyde have created for themselves to exist within. By the end of the DRIFT series, more new music and film will have been released by Underworld in its one-year duration than in the last fifteen years.”
