Daniel Avery | Together In Static
With his now sold out seated and socially distanced live show ‘Together In Static’ at London’s recently restored Hackney Church, Daniel Avery announces an 11-track album of the same name, comprised of music created exclusively for the performance and set for release via Phantasy.
The London-based artist and producer also announced a global stream from the church, allowing more fans to experience the immersive performance of previously unheard music combined with the refined and creatively ambitious production Avery has become renowned for. “As with many things this past year, the project took on a power and a life of its own right in front of me,” he explains. “The original idea was to simply play a couple of intimate gigs at Hackney Church during the last lockdown. I started to make music specifically for the shows yet, as plans continued to shift, I fell deeper into the waves. I considered a 12” or an EP but by the time I came up for air, I realised I had a complete record I wanted to share. I feel it’s some of my best work and I’m gassed for you all to hear it.”
Together in Static comes almost a year to the day after Avery’s surprise third studio album ‘Love + Light’, released last June in the midst of the coronavirus crisis. Where his previous record was hailed by NME as “a heartfelt eulogy for the hedonism we’re missing this summer,” hope and expectation course through the new album. There is joy in togetherness and change is coming.
