TIM HECKER SHARES NEW TRACK; YOU NEVER WERE TAKEN FROM ANOYO  AHEAD OF THE ALBUM RELEASE ON THE 10TH MAY VIA KRANKY

Tim Hecker shares a new track; You Never Were taken from his forthcoming album Anoyo (“the world over there”) incoming on Kranky this May which draws from the same sessions with members of Tokyo Gakuso which led to the 2018 album Konoyo, but rendered starker, solemn, and stripped back, with more of a naturalist tint.

 Hecker’s processing here moves in veiled ways, soft refractions and whispered shrouds woven within improvisational sessions of traditional gagaku interplay, evoking a sense of vaulted space, temples at dawn, shredded silk fluttering in the rafters. 

This is boldly barren music, skeletal and sculptural, shaped from wood, wind, strings, and mist. Modern yet ancient, delicate and desolate, Anoyo inverts its predecessor to compellingly conjure a parallel world of illusion, solitude, and eternal return. 

Track listing: 

1. That world 

2. Is but a simulated blur 

3. Step away from Konoyo 

4. Into the void 

5. Not alone

 6. You never were
