The 17-track album features contributions from Sampha, Zsela, Aura T-09, Vanessa Benelli Mosell, and Christel Well.

Karma & Desire is “a romantic tragedy set between the heavens and the underworld,” explains Actress, and explores “the same sort of things that I like to talk about — love, death, technology, the questioning of one’s being.”

It follows on from the release of his 88 mixtape via a suitably cryptic password-protected website in July, as well his Young Paint mini-album, released via Werk__Ltd and The Vinyl Factory.
