Listen to the lead track ‘rightclick’ now.
Mira Calix will release her new EP Utopia on 10″ vinyl later this month, her first release on Warp for over a decade. The artist describes the EP as “something for friends to move to in the early hours of a louche house party!”
The lead track, ‘rightclick’, was borne out of the Random Acts short film Utopia, from which the EP takes its name. Directed by Adam Thirwell and starring Lily Cole, the film heavily featured an alternate version of the track, which you can listen to below.
“It was really refreshing to make this EP”, says Calix. “In a way it’s going back to my roots, my first ever release on Warp was a 10″, but it also felt completely fresh, playful, to just build some tracks around a cinematic scene.”
In 2014, Mira Calix collaborated with singer Terersa Duddy and artist Conrad Shawcross to create music for The Ada Project, which was subsequently released by The Vinyl Factory.
Utopia arrives on January 25 via Warp Records and is available to pre-order now. Check out the cover art and tracklist below.
