Starry-eyed Scottish producer Rustie revealed details of his sophomore LP, Green Language, along with an early peek at the album via lead single Raptor.
Green Language, due August 26 via Warp, is the follow-up to 2011’s Glass Swords. Raptor was first debuted on Annie Mac’s BBC Radio 1 show on June 20, and finds Rustie doubling down on the mind-melting, maximalist synth orchestration heard on last year’s Slasherr/Triadzz single. Indeed, Rustie would prefer that you leave your brain at the door while listening; in a press release, he stated that the LP’s title is derived from “medieval literature, Renaissance magic, and ancient mythology. It’s a language that’s non-dualistic, that speaks directly to your emotions without the mind interfering with the message. And music is like that for me.”
Rustie is set to make his way across North America on a string of tour dates at the end of July; peep the route below, and stream Raptor below that.
