For the album, library music label KPM gave Peel permission to reinterpret its 1972 ‘KPM 1000’ series, which includes Electrosonic — the music of Delia Derbyshire and the Radiophonic Workshop.

The KPM 1000 series was launched by the label to break into film, TV, and commercial markets. The series remains known for its distinctive green sleeves; the records are now sought-after items.

As well as tapping into the KPM series, Fir Waves also aims to make “connections and new patterns that mirror the Earth’s ecological cycles through music.”

It follows Peel’s last album, Chalk Hill Blue, on Rivertones.
