Sam Shepherd aka Floating Points has shared a new single, “Someone Close” (Ninja Tune). https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=V7W6HZ1GucA
Shepherd has also today announced that “Someone Close” will be released on vinyl alongside the three other new tracks he's shared this year: “Grammar,” “Vocoder” and “Problems.” All four will be available on limited vinyl for the first time on December 16.
“Grammar,” “Vocoder” and “Problems” were met with widespread praise including a Best New Track from Pitchfork and a glowing review from Resident Advisor, describing Shepherd as "one of electronic music's undisputed MVPs." “Someone Close” changes track completely, something Shepherd has done effortlessly across his career, capping off a run of releases that have showcased the many strings to his bow.
Following a summer of festival sets at Glastonbury, Coachella and Field Day, this Fall/Winter Shepherd will take things back indoors at home in the U.K. With an upcoming show on an incredible bill from The Warehouse Project he'll follow up with a marathon open-to-close set at London’s brand new 25,000 square-foot club HERE on New Year’s Day 2023. Tickets here.
