Claptone To Release New Album, ‘Fantast’

Claptone to release new album, ‘Fantast’

This is the second LP by the mysterious German artist.

Claptone, the gold masked DJ, just revealed he will be releasing a new album entitled ‘Fantast’, to be out on Different Recordings / [PIAS] imprint.

The thirteen track venture includes collaborations with a diverse group of names such as Bloc Party’s Kele Okereke, Blaenavon, Tender, Jones, Zola Blood, Austra’s Katie Stelmanis, The Boxer Rebellion’s Nathan Nicholson, Clap Your Hands Say Yeah, Joan as a Policewoman and Matt Simons.

“Over the last two years it has been a great pleasure to work on this album as a counterpoint to the hectic world of travelling as a DJ. To lose myself when making music, to dive into and create my very own realm of beauty. I admit it’s a dreamy, a heartfelt, at times a naive and surely escapist album, but what to do if one – on the quest for his soul – develops a strong desire to go back to his roots, back to nature? Did I find myself on that journey? Rather not. But I found some beautiful moments in the green, out in the woods, out in the fields, under the moon and in the night, moments, which I want to share with you. And there is one thing I learned and now it can be told, I am and have always been a ‘Fantast’.”

‘Fantast’ will be out on June 8th. Stream/buy the first single ‘In the Nights feat. Ben Duffy’
