Daniel Avery Shares New EP 'More Truth' || Via Mute
Daniel Avery expands on the textures and energy of his critically-acclaimed fifth studio album with More Truth, a 7-track collection of new singles, B-sides and bonus material to complete the collaborative universe established on 2022's Ultra Truth. More Truth is out today via Mute and can be purchased or streamed HERE.
Beginning with the thunderous rave chorus of lead track “Going So Low”, a brand new collaboration with vocalist/producer Georgia, More Truth explores the furthest emotional reaches of Avery's studio fever dream.
Speaking on the EP Daniel Avery says: "More Truth. More sounds from the world of Ultra. B-sides, bonus tracks and unheard noise. This is our Ultra Truth. We’re not going anywhere."
Released back in November last year Ultra Truth offered a very different listening experience to any of Avery’s previous records. It inhabited its own world of sound, a construct built in Avery’s Thames side studio with collaborative help from a host of friends: the production touch of Ghost Culture and Manni Dee, the vocals of HAAi, Jonnine Standish (HTRK), AK Paul and the voices of Marie Davidson, Kelly Lee Owens, Sherelle and James Massiah. In creating Ultra Truth, Avery went back to many of the things that had inspired him to first make music as a teenager: pensive, emotive records by Deftones, Portishead, Nick Cave or Mogwai, the exquisite darkness of David Lynch’s movies and, on tracks like “Devotion” and “Higher”, the thunderous energy of left-field rave music. It was a clear standout record of 2022 and critically acclaimed across the board, appearing on numerous end of year lists with Daniel also gracing the cover of Disco Pogo, Music Tech, Beatportal and DJ Mag who called it “the defining album of his career”.
Ultra Truth was the musical truth of one of the country’s most innovative, boundary-pushing electronic producers, and its companion follow up More Truth demonstrates Daniel Avery’s prolific creative vision is not to be ignored. Daniel is playing shows across Europe this summer as well as appearing stateside at Outside Lands Festival in San Francisco, Lights Down Low in LA and Holocene in Portland.
